The importance of user-centered design is well-established. This blunt statement from Dieter Rams says it all: "In my eyes, indifference towards people and the lives they lead is the only sin a designer can commit." But it's a significant challenge to translate high-level, human-centered concerns into the actual clicks and taps of a software product. We may have good intentions, but the real test is how our users feel when using the product.
The goal of the lesson is to help you connect high-level goals to specific design approaches in order to build products that are well-designed at every layer.
