Beyond the Beep

July 18th 2016

A look (and listen) at the use of sounds in user experience design.

This is awesome – it's like an audio version of Design Details! Beyond the Beep by Jordan Kolasinski digs deep into sound design in products, with explanations and technical insights into the tiny sounds that add context to our digital experiences.

Sound design is an exciting field that can add a whole new layer to an experience. I believe that, if tastefully done, sound can create an immense amount of delight (aka the holy grail for designers) and help people connect with products in an entirely different way. See: pressing and holding on the thumbs up button in Messenger...pop!

Beyond the Beep hasn't been updated in quite a while, but I hope that Jordan will revive it soon. Until then you can follow him on Twitter.
