A short session (~30 minutes) for Carsonified's FOWA Tour.

Application design is about the experience: allowing users to perform specific tasks quickly and easily. When this is done correctly, the interface becomes transparent — users only notice your application's interface when it gets in their way.

By taking cues from the world of product design, and testing with real people throughout the design process, we can create interfaces that users never even notice.
