Projekte für Webseiten oder Software fordern heute neben dem bloßen Funktionieren auch eine einfache Bedienung. Was „einfach“ oder „intuitiv“ ist, hängt dabei von der Nutzungssituation und der Zielgruppe ab. Usability wird nicht am Ende eines Projektes auf eine Webseite oder Software aufgetragen – Usability kann nur gelingen, wenn sie in allen Projektphasen und von allen Beteiligten ernstgenommen wird. Das Buch „User – Interface – Design“ beschreibt nicht nur die Ansprüche an eine gute Nutzer-Schnittstelle, sondern bietet einen Überblick und Einstieg in alle Aspekte des Interface-Design: von Geschichte über Design-Grundlagen und Standard-Elemente bis zu ISO- und DIN-Normen. Ein umfangreiches Glossar erläutert die Fachbegriffe, und zahlreiche Checklisten unterstützen bei der Umsetzung im Alltag.

Although numerous sources document aspects of user-centered design, there are few references that consider how a designer transforms the information gathered about users and their work into an effective user interface design. This book explains just how designers bridge that gap. A group of leading experts in GUI design describe their methods in the context of specific design projects, and while the projects, processes, and methods vary considerably, the common theme is building a bridge between user requirements and user interface design.

User interfaces and supporting documentation are both supposed to help people when using a complex device. But often, these forms of support seem to come from different worlds. User interface designers, document designers, and researchers in both interface and document design share many goals, but are also separated by many barriers. In this book, user interface designers and documents designers from Microsoft Corporation and from Apple Computer, plus researchers from several universities try to bridge the gap between interface design and document design. They discuss opportunities for closer cooperation, and for more integrated and effective help for users of modern technology. Keywords: Man Machine Interaction; User Interface Design; Online Help Design; Document Design; Information Design; Visual Communication; Technical Communication; Gerontechnology Target group: user interface designers, manual designers, designers of instructions for use, interaction researchers, information designers, document designers

Whether you are a professional new to the user-centered design field, or an experienced designer who needs to learn the fundamentals of user interface design and evaluation, this book can lead the way. What will you get from this book? Based on a course from the Open University, UK which has been taught to over a thousand professionals and students, this book presents an overview of the field. It illustrates the benefits of a user-centered approach to the design of software, computer systems, and web sites, and provides a clear and practical discussion of requirements gathering; developing interaction design from user requirements; and user interface evaluation. The book's coverage includes established HCI topics—for example, visibility, affordance, feedback, metaphors, mental models, and the like—combined with practical guidelines for contemporary designs and current trends, which makes for a winning combination. You get a clear presentation of ideas, illustrations of concepts, using real-world applications. This book will help you develop all the skills necessary for iterative user-centered design, and provides a firm foundation for user interface design and evaluation on which to build. Co-published by the Open University, UK. Covers the design of graphical user interfaces, web sites, and interfaces for embedded systems. Full color production, with activities, projects, hundreds of illustrations, and industrial applications.

This book shows you how to design the user interface in a systematic and practical way. It bridges the gap between traditional programming perspectives, which often see the user interface as an afterthought, and human-computer interaction approaches, which are more user-centric but give little guidance on screen design and system development.
