Designing Interactions

Designing interactions is about shaping the way we think about and interact with technology, especially computer technology. Designers think about many things when creating a new product. They consider whether the product performs the function that it is supposed to. They think about how easy or difficult it is to use. They consider the price and how the product looks. They may also consider the social connotations of owning or using the product. This book discusses some of the characteristics of good design--a clear mental model, positive user feedback, clear navigation, and consistent behavior. It traces the history of digital design, providing many examples of good design and discussing what makes them so effective.

This book can be found in HECSA Library:
