Calm Technology
Designing for the Next Generation of Devices

How can you design technology that becomes a part of a user’s life and not a distraction from it? This practical book explores the concept of calm technology, a method for smoothly capturing a user’s attention only when necessary, while calmly remaining in the background most of the time. You’ll learn how to design products that work well, launch well, are easy to support, easy to use, and remain unobtrusive.

Named one of Inc. Magazine’s 30 under 30 and Fast Company’s Most Influential People in Technology, they were named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in 2012 and received the Claude Shannon Innovation Award from Bell Labs. They were the co-founder and CEO of Geoloqi, a location-based software company acquired by Esri.
