About Dan Saffer
I’m an interaction designer and the author of four books on design: Designing Devices (2011), Designing Gestural Interfaces (2008), and Designing for Interaction (2006, 2009). My new book, Microinteractions, will be published in 2013.
I’m Director of Interaction Design at SMART Design in San Francisco.
Since 1995, I’ve designed devices, software, websites, and services. Millions of people every day use the products I’ve designed. I speak at conferences and teach workshops on interaction design all over the world. I’m the proud owner of a Masters of Design in Interaction Design from Carnegie Mellon University, and my design innovations have received several patents.
You can find me on these social networks:
I have number of side projects you might be interested in:
- Designing Devices, a blog about device design.
- No Ideas But In Things, a collection of physical interfaces for inspiration.
- The Interaction Design Library, where I curate articles, books, presentations, and videos on design going back to the 1940s.
I play the cello. Badly. I have trouble drawing straight lines.
