Design for Cognitive Bias

Our users have biases and so do we. My new book, Design for Cognitive Bias, explores how design and content strategy can help keep them at bay (or use them for good).

Design for Cognitive Bias book cover.

This essential book will fundamentally change the way you think about design—and about your own mind.

Need a speaker for your next event? I’ve given standing-room-only presentations at TEDNYC, SXSW, Confab, LavaCon, UX Copenhagen, Artifact, and the Wharton Web Conference (and my webinar game is pretty tight).

My talks focus on how design can mitigate bias (or use it for good) and help people talk to each other more clearly and treat each other more equitably. I also offer an inclusive design workshop if you want a deeper dive on these topics.
