The Internet Case Study Book

The Internet Case Study Book came out not to long ago. I tried to order it then but it went out of stock. Hopefully I’m with better luck today, because I just ordered it again. I find it very interesting to read about different cases, to see the thought behind it and to also see the reactions and what happened after.

2 new books

I just ordered these two books, Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky and The Internet Case Study Book by Rob Ford. I really enjoy reading and learning about ideas and design, so I feel very happy right now and can’t wait until I have the books here at home.

Book: Perfect Pitch

I’m reading Perfect Pitch by Jon Steel and I love it. I love every chapter, every page, every sentence. When I’m reading about a case it feels like I’m there, and I can really relate to all the tips and take with me. There is a lot of information, but I will sure try to remember it all.

I really like chapter 4 when talking about a five-step program.
step 1: Grazing
step 2: Looking for Meaning
step 3: Drop it
step 4: Adapt and Distill
step 5: Writing the Presentation

Reading about step three was very interesting. Drop it was related to finding connections between what you have prepared. But instead of you thinking about it you should let your unconscious do it for you. So sleep, go to the gym, or go shopping. It is when you don’t think about your design/account/presentation that your mind does the work for you.

I have a notepad next to my bed, because I always get ideas right before I fall asleep. And I love running. That really clears my mind, and I see things for other perspectives. It is kind of cool when it happens. And really cool reading about it.
