While at Interaction Week 18 in Lyon, France Graphic Mint’s Director of User Experience, Séamus Byrne, was fortunate to sit down and talk to Thomas Wendt, one of the event speakers. Thomas discusses his second book “Persistent Fools: Cunning Intelligence and the Politics of Design”, which was also the basis of his talk, as well as how he became an author and whether we can design experiences.
