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, is AVAILABLE NOW.
I’m a Creative Director 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 curate articles, books, presentations, and videos on design going back to the 1940s for The Interaction Design Library.
I play the cello. Badly. I have trouble drawing straight lines.
