Design isn’t black magic, it’s a field that people can learn. In this talk two elite designers from Google will give you an advanced crash course in interactive and visual design. Topics will include mental models, natural mappings, metaphors, mode errors, visual hierarchies, typography and gestalt principles. Correctly applied this knowledge can drastically improve the quality of your work.
