Apps must be usable
to be useful.

Design is a verb, not a noun. It's the process that leads to the finished product. It's the thought behind each decision, visual and functional, that can turn good code into something people actually want to use.

After all, these apps are used by humans. Shouldn't they be built for humans?

My name is Hans van de Bruggen and I'm a User Experience Designer living in Santa Clara, CA.

Some recent projects have included:

A redesign of Steven Frank's Internet Garage Sale for iOS, product design pitches for Apple, a navigation and visual overhaul for ChannelFlip, and product and visual design for ChrpChrp.
