Video Evening: Visual Design, Branding and Passion

We would like to close the year watching together two videos (20 minutes each), followed by discussion.

Nick Myers: The Visual Interface is Now Your Brand. Nick Myers is the managing director of visual design and branding at Cooper where he works with teams to design experiences across a variety of digital products and services. He helps companies craft interfaces and brands that are both unique and compelling, yet authentic and usable.

During his time at Cooper, he has focused on the design of iPad collaboration tools, portfolio management, in-home patient care, 3D interior design, photo sharing, virtualization, medical informatics, and even check fraud. He is an instructor for Cooper’s visual interface design class and he writes often for the Cooper Journal. His designs have received several awards since he began working as a designer in 1996. When not designing, he’s usually training for his next marathon. You can follow him on Twitter at @nickmyer5


Stephen Anderson: Long After the Thrill: Sustaining Passionate Users. Stephen P. Anderson is a speaker and consultant based out of Dallas, Texas.
