Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ecological Interface Design delivers the techniques and examples that provide you with a foundation to succeed in designing advanced display graphics. The opening chapters introduce the “art” of interface design by exposing the analytical methods behind designs, the most common graphical forms, and how these methods and forms are pulled together to create a complete design.

The book then incorporates case studies that further emphasize techniques and results. Each example exemplifies a solution to a certain part of the EID puzzle. Some of the examples demonstrate the analysis phase, while others apply more scrutiny to graphical design. Each is unique, allowing you to use them in the development of your own designs.

The volume concludes with an analysis that connects ecological interface design with other common interface design methods, enabling you to better understand how to combine approaches in the creation of design solutions.

Synopsis:

A unique text, Ecological Interface Design shows students and industry professionals sound, systematic guidelines for analyzing systems using cognitive work analysis to solve real problems. Ecological interface design involves the practical application of such analysis in the design of human-computer interfaces. This distinctive book provides multiple examples of cognitive work analysis for different kinds of problems, and it demonstrates how to apply analyses to create new computer interface concepts and generate effective interfaces. Essential examples from various industries are worked in detail in the book, lending practical guidance in a case study format.
