Dan Saffer, like many designers, likes to quote Charles Eames. But unlike many designers, Saffer—Director of Interaction Design at Smart Design—wrote a whole book inspired by one of his favorite Eames quotes: “The details are not the details. They make the design.” Saffer’s book, titled Microinteractions, takes Eames’s maxim to heart and then some. “For the last decade or so, designers have been encouraged to tackle ‘wicked problems’ and to address systems,” he tells Co.Design.

Aw. It’s OK, Johnny.
