HFI Buttons

Around 1982 HFI issued a button that said "Know Thy Users, for They are Not You". It was given away at a few tradeshows and to our surprise the button traveled around the world. Unfortunately, the button did not even have our name on it. But we learned from that.

Today we do not even have a single copy of that original button (we would sure like one!). But we have a long history of giving away buttons about usability. While we STILL make the "Know Thy Users" button; there has been quite a collection of additional buttons.

HFI is famous for its colorful and popular usability buttons.
