Web usability consulting
Steve Krug (pronounced “kroog”) is best known as the author of Donít Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its third edition with over 400,000 copies in print.
Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another one: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems.
The books were based on the 20+ years heís spent as a usability consultant for a wide variety of clients like Apple, Bloomberg.com, Lexus.com, NPR, the International Monetary Fund, and many others.
His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense (“just me and a few well-placed mirrors”) is based in Chestnut Hill, MA.
Steve currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of Law and Order.
UserTesting.com has a very fun two-part interview about the new edition of Don't Make Me Think. At one point, I actually can't remember Geena Davis's name. (40 min. each)
New Riders podcast. A great discussion I had with my publisher Nancy Ruenzel about usability testing on mobile devices. (15 min.)
OutSystems video of my keynote Usability: Just one more thing you don't have time for? from their NextStep conference in Lisbon. (30 min.) Or there's their interview that includes a sketchnote drawing of me without a nose.
I've been so busy recovering from updating Don't Make Me Think that I haven't planned any presentations or workshops yet. Follow me on the Twitter @skrug to find out when I do.
