Hack Design

A number of months ago I began taking the Hack Design course.  It is a series of curated design lessons aimed at technologists. The course has been an absolute revelation for me. Each week I receive an e-mail packed with design tutorials and resources aimed at programmers. Each lesson presents a new topic such as "colour theory", "typography", "design hierarchy" etc. It's a great resource and absolutely essential for non-designer wishing to get  a grasp of the fundamentals. One of the exercises in week one was to watch Gary Hustwit's film Objectified. The film has interviews with such design luminaries as Dieter Rams, Jonathan Ives and the late Bill Moggridge. It's a fascinating insight into the design process and designers themselves. I would highly recommend the course and film.
