What Jared has to say about Amy Jo Kim: With every discussion Amy Jo and I have had, I’ve walked away with a ton of ideas on what to do to make my projects a success. She has this magical ability to explain, in easy-to-understand terms, what any interaction designer needs to know to create applications loved by their users.

I find it hard to imagine anyone who has put more energy and passion into uncovering the hidden secrets of what’s happening inside compelling, hit games. Amy Jo has spent her entire career inside and outside of game companies, extracting the methods, practices, and frameworks that will make any application engaging to use. Her design studio, Shufflebrain, has worked with Netflix, Rock band, eBay, NYTimes.com, and many others to create irresistible designs.
