Event Details

Hi, we are Hong Kong Design Book Club. We read design related books and discuss them once a month. This month's book is Living with Complexity by Donald A. Norman. Read the book before the meetup. You don't have to finish the whole book, but please read enough to discuss the topic.

Ticket price is only for deposit and I'll return 10 HKD when you show up. (I'm doing this because there are so many no-showers, please understand)

"If only today’s technology were simpler! It’s the universal lament, but it’s wrong. In this provocative and informative book, Don Norman writes that the complexity of our technology must mirror the complexity and richness of our lives. It’s not complexity that’s the problem, it’s bad design. Bad design complicates things unnecessarily and confuses us. Good design can tame complexity.

Norman gives us a crash course in the virtues of complexity. Designers have to produce things that tame complexity. But we too have to do our part: we have to take the time to learn the structure and practice the skills. This is how we mastered reading and writing, driving a car, and playing sports, and this is how we can master our complex tools. 

Complexity is good. Simplicity is misleading. The good life is complex, rich, and rewarding—but only if it is understandable, sensible, and meaningful."
