I'm an engineer, how do I learn design?
Garry Tan recommends these 7 books:
Garry Tan says,
The simplest book I recommend everyone to read when they want to do design is Don't Make Me Think by Steve Krug. One of my other favourite books that I highly recommend for new designers is the Design of Everyday Things by Donald Norman. If you read every single one of these books from my list, you would be a pretty good designer maybe. These books are just a starting point, and far from being comprehensive.
