Designing for a multi-device world can get complex quickly. Yet, the goal is still to make experiences simpler and seamless. Nature provides a great framework to guide these efforts in this new digital ecology.
Always on the body, wearables have created an unprecedented intimacy between people and information.
"Smart" design plans for connected lives, not screens everywhere. As the digital home becomes more connected the key is to deliver value – not novelty.
Television is evolving. The change is continuous and continually accelerating. As we design TV’s future, we remember its past and ask, What’s worth saving?
Conversational voice UIs have tantalized and disappointed us for decades. By considering technical capabilities and context of use, we can utilize voice to support natural human interactions.
Mobile user research cannot afford to be confined by physical space. People are on the move and research should meet users where they are.
Translate your core experience principles, not pixels.
So you built an iPhone app. People can take your brand anywhere they go. But do they? And where do you go from here? Have apps delivered the value you expected from mobile?

How can design make sense of user behavior and influence the way people buy goods and services?
As specialists in the mobile industry, we are often asked about the state of mobile and the practices that can best move UI design forward. Here are 10 considerations that drive our design practice.
As interfaces become more immersive, motion prototyping can help designers test the viability of digital spaces.
Once impenetrable, walled gardens, mobile apps stores have become unfettered and overgrown. In these conditions, how can today's apps find a way to thrive?
With the increasing demand for more fluid and responsive experiences, it is becoming an even more arduous task to keep the device resolutions and screen sizes straight.
Designing for the cloud requires UIs that evolve users' expectations. The challenge: design a cloud experience that is invisible.
There is an emerging class of devices that excel where the computer doesn’t belong and the phone doesn’t perform. How will they be different?
Television is breaking free of old paradigms and constraints. With today’s untethered lifestyle, what can it become?
Devices have outgrown one-size-fits-all design. Experiences must be selectively adapted only where they are relevant, and flow together across a series of devices and contexts.
The era of mobility has arrived. Newer, more powerful devices have been untethered from desktops and land lines. But the essential truth remains: people are mobile, not their devices.
There is a new challenge in the consumer device market. We call it "feature attachment" or "feature addiction." In the name of quality experiences – can we kick the habit?
Can mobility save the PC? Modern computing is being led by mobile in almost every way and Windows 8 is Microsoft’s take. We offer 10 design insights you’ll need as you create experiences and apps for Windows 8 devices.
