It seems to be on hiatus from its daily update schedule, but the site Little Big Details, mentioned the books, seems awesome... I love that stuff, and I think finding low-hanging fruit is something I do well.
Good quote cited in the book:
"Less isn't more; just enough is more."Finally, in the playful section the book mentioned Naoto Fukasawa's clever tea bag marionette:
"This concept comes from the motion of dipping a tea bag in hot water, which reminds him of a marionette dancing. The handle on this human-shaped tea bag looks like a marionette handle too. When the bag is dipped in hot water, the leaves swell to fill the bag, creating a deep-hued roll. Repeating the dipping action, the user is engaged in a wondrous world of puppet play. Thus, design intrigued with the unconscious emerges through the medium of an action."
