From the moment it was once published almost ten years ago, Elements of User Experience became a vital reference for web and interaction designers the world over, and has come to define the core principles of the practice. Now, in this up to date, expanded, and full-color new edition, Jesse James Garrett has refined his thinking about the Web, going beyond the desktop to include information that also applies to the sudden proliferation of mobile devices and applications.
Successful interaction design requires more than just creating clean code and sharp graphics. You should also fulfill your strategic objectives even as meeting the needs of your users. Even the best content and the most sophisticated technology would possibly not will let you balance those goals without a cohesive, consistent user experience to fortify it.
With such a lot of issues involved—usability, brand identity, information architecture, interaction design— creating the user experience may also be overwhelmingly complex. This new edition of The Elements of User Experience cuts through that complexity with clear explanations and vivid illustrations that focus on ideas reasonably than tools or techniques. Garrett gives readers the big picture of user experience development, from strategy and requirements to information architecture and visual design.
