Thoughts from the team
This week and to much fanfare, Microsoft launched Windows 10. Three years after their much misunderstood Windows 8 release Microsoft are hoping they have finally found the right balance between their desktop and tablet/touchscreen interface. Many articles have been written about the reasons why Microsoft skipped Windows 9, and about how, in a radical departure from its traditional paid software model, they have decided to follow Apple’s lead and offer Windows 10 as a free upgrade for anyone running Windows 7 or 8 (for the next year anyway).
At GCD we are passionate about creating software that’s intuitive and easy to use. We are constantly revisiting the solutions we produce and consider Steve Krug’s “Don’t Make Me Think” approach as one of our founding principles. As designers and developers it is our job to do the thinking for people and make the job of using the software we create as easy as possible to use.
We are thrilled to introduce two new members of the GCD team: Richard and Robert.
