I am writing a book about product design psychology. I never wrote a book before, I’m a terribly slow writer (besides the fact that my twin daughters don't exacty speed up the process of this side project) and I’m not a native english speaker so it might sound stupid to try it. But hey, not trying would always be more stupid. However, I might need some help. I need help with deciding topics and with my english. But if some of you are willing to give me feedback, I believe I will be able to write a book that can help designers better understand the psychological side of product design.
When I started out as a designer I felt embarrassed about actually being a psychologist instead of a designer — they might discover I’m a total fraud! But after a lot of hours designing, a gazillion projects and becoming more confident about my design skills I discovered that my background in psychology was actually very useful; design = psychology. I’m thinking of dividing the book into three sections: Psychology of the Designer, Psychology of Design and User Psychology. Below every section I wrote down possible chapters.
Like I mentioned above, I would love to get feedback from you. What do you think of the topics? Do you miss anything? Please let me know on Twitter.
