About

About Putting People First
This non-commercial experience design gateway is developed as a public service to all those interested in the broader field of experience design and user-centred design.
All posts have in common that they reveal some insight on how to create products and services that are driven by an understanding of people.
Putting People First is maintained by Mark Vanderbeeken of the Italy-based experience design company Experientia with the support of his business partners and his readers. It is read by about 6000 people per day, most of whom access the contents via rss.

Copyright policy
Putting People First adheres to the copyright rule on quotations, which allows for a summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report. Photos and graphics are usually directly from the original new story or website and therefore fall under the same quotation rule.
We sometimes provide direct links to downloads, but these downloads are always located on external sites (unless we are explicitly authorised by the publishing party).
PPF also follows standard blog practices, such as TrackBack, PingBack and the “(via …)” mention to identify sources.

Design and development credits
Putting People First runs on WordPress. The site was redesigned by Jan-Christoph Zoels and Janina Boesch, with valuable usability and navigation support by Michele Visciola. Technical development was in the hands of Beverly Tang.

Language
Putting People First uses British English, so we talk about user-centred, specialisation and behaviour.

Linkrot
Since Putting People First contains thousands of links to external sites, older links are vulnerable to linkrot and may not work anymore. We cannot take responsibility for that and trust you can find the materials through other means.
