The book suggestion of this week is about design and how it has helped products to be more than just useful but also pleasant to use. Well-designed products create a emotional bond with the user and therefore distance themselves from the competitors.
As a child, I remember my older brothers going to skate, and I used to find those skateboards pretty awesome. It's incredible how those old school skateboard designs were so darn cool...
Today we get to see a bunch of really well designed boards, but most of it doesn't have that same spirit of coolness, rather than just "well designed" or pretty. I vote for more old school design nowadays. These are all from the collection of some guy (I didn't find his name), and there are a bunch more at his site, so you should really go there check them out. I hope you enjoy these, and if any of you out there designs skates, please, remember these the next time you do your thing. Cheers! ;)
