We often take short cuts when we do our designs and end up copying others or relying on what we think are ‘best practice’ concepts. While this is often enough, if we don’t question what is best practice or do our own research we may not achieve

In this talk, Amanda will look at a few ideas from other disciplines, such as anthropology, neuroscience and psychology that should be considered when designing internal user interfaces.
