Design Sprints

I am a believer in kicking off product design initiatives with design sprints. The design sprint system will not work for every design problem but they are a great tool for condensing design thinking into an agile product development cycle.

A blog post about CSUN is long overdue. I attended CSUN last year in San Diego and it was eye-opening.

A few weeks ago I was designing a web application that included a form. When it came time to design and spec the submit button and I realized that including an inactive (or disabled) state for submit button was not only unnecessary, but it would detract from the usability of the application.
