We have shared many opportunities to develop and crystallize my views on conceptual design and the methodologies that can help develop conceptual models. Debi, you have enabled my dream to write this book become a reality.

#3

My brother Zeev Parush, who is also an experienced professional in the field of user interface design and user experience. We have discussed and debated design in general, the many challenges in conceptual design, and the significance of engaging in it.
