I am looking for a good book about physical product design processes/methodologies.
Perhaps you can watch the movie "Objectified", free on Netflix I believe.
Thanks! Will definitely look into this.
This book helped me think about a lot of every day things, I recommend this book as well!
Added these to my wish-list. I have heard some good stuff about The Laws of Simplicity.
I really enjoyed "Design is the Problem" by Nathan Shedroff: http://rosenfeldmedia.com/books/design-is-the-problem/
Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals is great and sounds like what you are looking for.
and yes "Objectified" on Netflix as someone said.
Ordered the book. I think I have watched that documentary a while ago. Maybe it's time to re-watch it.
+1 for “The Design of Everyday Things”
This is not a book, but you might find this little .pdf insightful. It talks about experience design using the example of a simple juicer.
I thought this book with its huge title was good: Universal Principles of Design, Revised and Updated: 125 Ways to Enhance Usability, Influence Perception, Increase Appeal, Make Better Design Decisions, and Teach through Design: http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Principles-Design-Revised-Updated/dp/1592535879
Universal Principles of Design is brilliant
As it turns out, there's a How to Start a Startup class that released about this today.
