In our work, confusing complexity is the natural result of an unchecked design and development process. Teams work hard, responding to customer requests through
incremental improvement and feature enhancements, yet they often end up with a dismaying array of features that make users unhappy.
In this entertaining presentation, Jared will share some of his recent research into the craft of professional magic.
He'll demonstrate the parallels between the world of magical illusions and the world of digital design, comparing the similarities between professional illusions and some of today's top design techniques.
