Design is much more than just pleasing to the eye; it can make the difference between an ethical and unethical product. If you’re looking to learn more about how design works, the Fundamentals of Product Design eBook Bundle by O’Reilly has five books that shows you how to build better, from how to collect the data to the final touches. Listed at $178, it’s on sale now for just $19.99. 

Design By Experts

O’Reilly is probably best known outside the engineering world for the animals on its covers, but it has decades of expertise in explaining technical concepts in concise, clear language. First working in the field in 1978, O’Reilly has been one of the most respected names in technical publishing ever since. It was the first to launch an online technical resource, helped launch the maker movement by founding the Maker Faire, and more. As a result, their texts are full of both best practices and lessons learned in the field.

Making Meaningful Design

Each of the five books focuses on a different fundamental of design. First, you’ll learn about A/B testing, collecting data, and how to apply it for better design. Next, you’ll read up on UX research, how to conduct it, and the language and tools tied to the field.

Once you know what to do, a book on “tragic design” will show how bad design can not only be annoying, but even outright dangerous. Then you’ll apply those lessons to learn how to make products people want to use. Finally, when you’re ready to build a design team, you’ll learn how to do it step by step.

Good design is thoughtful and to some degree intuitive, and by learning from both case studies and theory behind them, you can deliver better websites, apps, and products.
