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 latest book, Microinteractions, was published in 2013.
I’m a Creative Director at Smart Design in San Francisco.
Since 1995, I’ve designed devices, apps, websites, appliances, automotive interiors, services, and robots. 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.
