"An engaging, informative, and enjoyable history of interaction design that helps us appreciate the contributions of some incredible people who shaped this corner of the design field. What fun!"--Dan Boyarski, Professor and Head, School of Design, Carnegie Mellon University "This original and sound book should have a profound effect on design for digital media." Mark D. Gross , Design Machine Group, Department of Architecture, University of Washington "This original and sound book should have a profound effect on design for digital media."--Mark D. Gross, Design Machine Group, Department of Architecture, University of Washington "Improvisational Design is a provocative, challenging book for designers confronted not with just multimedia, but with multi-dimensional design problems. Suguru Ishizaki offers designers a framework for rigorously considering these dimensions as creatively as we have considered visual solutions. His insights are both valuable and timely."--Bill Hill, President, MetaDesign North America "A different approach to designing -- one that considers it a continuous and dynamic activity -- which is all the more relevant to the range of digital communication designers today."--Dan Boyarski, Professor and Head, School of Design, Carnegie Mellon University "Design discourse has been spinning its wheels for years, trying to stay relevant in the context of a digital revolution. Suguru Ishizaki solves the conundrum by tearing down established design processes and rebuilding them on the adaptable foundation of performance and improvisation. The result offers designers an adaptable approach to their craft well suited for the frenetic digital world. This is more than a treatise; it's CPR for contemporary design theory."--Eric Eaton, Principal, Deliberate Design, and author of *Design Whys: Designing Web Site Interface Elements*
