王品|创业者、游戏设计师、产品经理

中文

介绍一下你自己和所做的工作。

我是王品,我的工作是把想法发展成战略,再把它从战略发展为一个产品。我是个创业者、游戏设计师,同时也是个产品经理。现在是 Effective Design Lab 的合伙人。Effective Design Lab 帮助包括从初创企业到世界五百强的公司创造用户喜爱的产品体验。

你都在使用哪些硬件?

王品的工作环境

13” MacBook Air 是我包里必备的物品。我大多数工作就是靠这台电脑,再加上传统的纸笔或者白板完成的。

在家我还有一台超棒的游戏 PC、一台 Windows 笔记本和两个 24” 显示器。

出行时我会带 Kindle PaperwhiteiPhone 5s 和一副配合 Comply 海绵耳塞套使用的小米活塞,重点是最后这个。多年来我在高端入耳监听耳塞上花了几千美元,现在我出于音质和便利的考量而听这 15 美元的耳塞。Kindle 和我手机里的播客填充了我一天大部分的空隙。

软件呢?

我会用 GTD 软件来管理自己的时间,在 Mac 上会用 Things 建立主要的 todo list。我(尽量)让收件箱保持无邮件的状态,出门时也在手机上用 Clear。最近开始切到 Evernote 里做笔记。

完成设计工作时我会用 Photoshop 和 Keynote。项目允许的时候,我会直接用 HTML/ CSS 里做原型和设计(用 MacVim 和 Ethan Schoonover 的 Solarized 配色方案)。对于软件来说,设计是个持续的过程,我一直认为尽量参与其中比较好。

做团队项目时我们用 Trello,也用 Slack 沟通。我们试着把干扰减到最小。但也没什么能替代面对面交流就是了。

你最理想的工作环境是什么?

一个不会经常被打扰的地方。对我来说,找到个特定的精神空间比安排物理环境更重要。

你平时获得工作灵感的方式有哪些?

三个来源:
1)书,大多数是虚构类的,因为我们通过隐喻来理解事物。
2)朋友,他们的忙碌提醒我要去工作。
3)播客,向我展示新的东西。

推荐一件生活利器给大家。

买双质量好点的鞋!运动能刺激你的大脑。不幸的是,我们的大脑演化至此是为了完成复杂的运动,而不是为了做出好的设计。

Who are you, and what do you do?

I turn ideas into strategy and strategy into products. I’m an entrepreneur, game designer, and product guy. I’m a partner at Effective Design Lab, where we help companies from startups to Fortune 500s create experiences that users love.

What hardware do you use?

Pin Wang’s setup

My 13” MacBook Air is the first thing I put in my bag. This machine plus the old pen and paper or whiteboard is where most my work gets done.

At home is my Beast Gaming PC and a Windows laptop with two 24” monitors.

On the go I take my Kindle Paperwhite, iPhone 5s, and most importantly my Xiaomi Pistons with Comply foam ear-tips. Having spent thousands of dollars on high-end in-ear monitors over the years, I now use these $15 ones for sound quality and convenience. The Kindle and podcasts on my phone fill most of the gaps in my day with some substance.

And what software?

I organize myself with a GTD system, and use Things for Mac as my main todo list. I (try to) maintain a 0-inbox in Gmail and use Clear on the phone when I’m out. Recently I converted to Evernote for note taking.

For design I use Photoshop and Keynote. When the project allows I prototype and design directly in HTML/CSS (MacVim with Ethan Schoonover’s Solarized color scheme). In software, design is an ongoing process so I believe in staying involved as much as possible.

On team projects I employ Trello, and use Slack for communication. We try to keep interruptions to a minimum– though nothing can replace a face-to-face talk.

What is your ideal work environment?

Wherever people are not interrupting me constantly. Setting up my work environment is more of me occupying a specific mental space than organizing a physical location.

Where does your work inspiration come from?

Three things:
1) Books, and mostly fiction, because we understand through metaphor.
2) Friends, whose hustle reminds me to do the work.
3) Podcasts, to show me new things.

Recommend a useful tool for daily life.

Invest in a quality pair of shoes! Movement stimulates your brain. Unfortunately, our brains evolved out of a need for complex movement, not a need for great design.

阅读推荐:《创业维艰》。对普通创业者来说,这本书更像是一种情感补偿。艰难,但也请继续吧。
