I thoroughly enjoyed reading the insights of those chosen to be interviewed for this book. In Designing Media, design guru Bill Moggridge examines moggidge and conflicts between old and new media, describing how the MSM have changed and how new patterns of media consumption are emerging.

Join overdesigners who stay up-to-date with the Core77 newsletter Cheryl Heller posted a fantastic point of view on the Design Thinking movement. Great collection of point of views and surveys of digital creators and thinkers. That said, we suppose that the pick and choose hypertext way of gathering information from the feed is something Moggridge and most of the interviewees would mecia perfectly appropriate.

Designing Media [With DVD]

Design is all about context. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Matt Diaz rated it really liked it May 18, More annoying are the prosaically written personal vignettes describing each person Moggridge interviews, and the unnecessary summaries ending each chapter that seem to imply we readers are not smart enough to glean the insights buried A respectable achievement that suffers from subject matter than has quickly dated since the book was released.

When you bounce from an interview with DJ Spooky to Jimmy Wales, a little context is profoundly helpful, and Moggridge provides seamless segues.

But the long-dominant MSM–television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and books–have had to respond to emergent digital dedigning. True to the occasionally awkward mashup that is print media in biol digital age, Moggridge’s book includes an additional DVD of the actual interviews themselves.

Check out the above video of a small team of 3rd designibg students from UC posted by James Sloss. Jim rated it really liked it Mar 28, He designed the first laptop computer, the Grid Compass. We learn about innovations in media that rely on contributions from a crowd or a communityas told by Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales and Craigslist’s Craig Newmark; how the bull OK Go built a following using YouTube; how real-time connections between dispatchers and couriers inspired Twitter; how a BusinessWeek blog became a quarterly printed supplement to the magazine; and how e-readers have evolved from Dsigning eBook to QUE.

It’s hard to write a book on technology that is still current by the time it is published. Indeed, the interviews are available here.

Our only quibble would be that at the beginning of the book, Moggridge lays out that the blue text represents his voice. Product Tank did just that with “New Rule”, a ruler for the visually impaired.


Bill’s fascination with design, and with what people want from everyday things, provided a broad view of the information revolution.

Book Review: Designing Media, by Bill Moggridge

This book would make a great companion to any digital media course. The video focusses mainly on Don’t have an account?

The questions generally focus on how the interviewees got where mfdia are, where their big ideas came from, their core principles, and how they operate. Lucas rated it really liked it Mar 09, Jan 23, Pete Meyers rated it liked it. Not quite as good as Designing Interactions, perhaps because this viewpoint of “media” and new media in particular is more common and much more examined.

He described his career as having three phases: Nicholas rated it it was ok Oct 29, The book features interviews with thirty-seven significant figures in both traditional and new forms of mass communication; interviewees range from the publisher of the New York Times to the founder of Twitter. Thank you Bill Moggridge.

Designing Media

Having said that, I think that Designing Media does a good job at still being relevant. Under Moggridge’s watch, “Designing Media” becomes more than a set of interviews. By Michael DiTullo – Jan 19, Ruler for the visually impaired by Product Tank I love when miggridge are able to find seemingly simple solutions to everyday problems.
