I am Michael Curry, an interaction designer who creates simple yet powerful interfaces.
These days you can find me improving the User Experience at RedBeacon.
Previously, I have had the great fortunate to design, develop, and consult for some of the best startups on the web: Yieldbot, TripIt, Omniture, Snooth, Dapper, Multiply, FantasySP, FameBall, JKAIDesigns, SunkenShips, Pandora Data Systems, and Relevance Amplified.

"Affordance is a teaching tool. It's an attribute of an object that indicates how it can be interacted with. These are everywhere: a door handle is an affordance for pulling, a button is an affordance for pushing, and a knob is an affordance for turning. UI designers supply affordances as well, and they're often taken for granted."
