A true legend of design, Bill Moggridge passed away on Sept, 8th 2012 at the age of 69. After designing the first laptop computer, Bill pioneered interaction design, cofounded IDEO and most recently was the Director of the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Here’s a wonderful video outlining his achievements and design methodologies:
I was honored to have a photo of myself collaborating with other Toy Inventors at IDEO included in his book, Designing Interactions. While you’re there, check out the great video interviews of Bing Gordon, the founder of EA and Will Wright, the creator of the Sims franchise.
We’ll miss you dearly, Bill.
