Emotional Design | Book by Don Norman

Don Norman, 2004

Did you ever wonder why cheap wine tastes better in fancy glasses? Why sales of Macintosh computers soared when Apple introduced the colorful iMac? New research on emotion and cognition has shown that attractive things really do work better, as Donald Norman amply demonstrates in this fascinating book, which has garnered acclaim everywhere from Scientific American to The New Yorker.Emotional Design articulates the profound influence of the feelings that objects evoke, from our willingness to spend thousands of dollars on Gucci bags and Rolex watches, to the impact of emotion on the everyday objects of tomorrow.Norman draws on a wealth of examples and the latest scientific insights to present a bold exploration of the objects in our everyday world.

North Embarcadero Visionary Plan - Landscape and Boardwalk

North Embarcadero

Visionary Plan

Project Design Consultants (PDC) was chosen to lead the team for Phase I of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan. The project included preparing the construction documents to shift Harbor Drive east to create a 100-foot promenade between E Street and B Street and improvements to West Broadway from the railroad tracks to Harbor Drive to create a “Grand Hall” leading to the Harbor.  The plan to transform downtown San Diego’s western waterfront was a huge undertaking that included the Joint Power Authority (JPA) of three agencies. PDC  worked closely with the JPA that included the Port of San Diego, Civic San Diego, and the City of San Diego.


This high-profile project allowed PDC to contribute to what will ultimately provide San Diego with a world-class waterfront. The $24 million Phase I is the first in a series of projects that will eventually complete the over $200
