Exciting news: Cheryl has signed with UX industry stalwarts Rosenfeld Media to publish her first book, Design Beyond Devices, in late 2020. In Cheryl's own words: In Design Beyond Devices, I’ll explore the wide and complex systems, UX design, and service design required for truly multimodal, cross-device experiences. Whether you're grappling with multiple input modalities like touch and voice for the first time, or grappling with the end-to-end considerations for a multi-device ecosystem, you'll walk away with new frameworks and tools for deconstructing these complex problems into more manageable patterns and features. Ready to explore the final frontier of product design? Sign up at the Design Beyond Devices site to be the first to know about pre-sales, releases, and related community events with Cheryl!
