This powerful book/CD-ROM package takes the uncertainty out of GUI design by providing you with everything you need to know to quickly design interfaces and your own GUI standards. Drawing upon their experience as leading interface designers, educators, and constultants, the authors teach you the art and science of user centered design. They show you how to bring end users into the design process in order to dramatically enhance the usability of your designs, while making efficient use of your design time. They tell you the right questions to ask and how to translate user feedback into practical design solutions.
