Associate chair, user experience design

"As Dieter Rams said, 'Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.' But then, what is the best design? I am always trying to make our UX design students think further about the best design, based on meaningful and delightful user experience, not just simply by look and feel."
