My name is Bryan Yurasits. I'm an interaction designer with a background in web development.
I am a strong believer that interactions are actually conversations people have with machines. It's my mission to design polite, thoughtful, and accommodating participants in those conversations. I love prototyping. It's fast, it's messy, it gets the job done. I find that building a quick interactive HTML prototype is my most effective way to discover and communicate a design's strengths and weaknesses.
My experience as a web developer as well as my interest in cognitive psychology and neuroscience provide me with a unique perspective on interaction design.
I will leave you with my favorite quote. Actually, it's a pair of quotes that form a cohesive statement. Both are from Don Norman's book "The Design of Everyday Things”.
People don't want to buy a quarter-inch drill. They want a quarter-inch hole!Theodore Levitt
Once you realize that they don't really want the drill, you realize that perhaps they don't really want the hole, eitherDon Norman
