Design Critique: Products for People

Encouraging usable designs for a better customer experience.

Sep 20, 2008

Attention all shavers everywhere: it's a shaving razor user experience extravaganza! Tim Keirnan is joined by four count 'em FOUR co-hosts in this special extended edition of Design Critique. Mike Beasley, Dave Mitropoulos-Rundus, John Rivard, and Rodney Hampton donate their time, their insights, their humor, and their razors to a freewheeling discussion of razor design.

What makes for a good shaving razor design? What defines a good shaving experience? What is it about Mike's t-shirt that makes passersby ask him "What is usability?" as he saunters down the street? Why did Rodney switch to a straight razor, and how difficult is it to use? How to be green and save money on your shaving tools...You'll hear all this and more. Ladies, we don't mean to exclude you and some of the content may apply to your world, too.

Here are Rodney's suggested shaving links:
