book event with
GUI wizard Jeff Johnson

designing-with-the-mind-in-mindJeff Johnson, Ph.D., founder of UI Wizards, Inc., explores the psychology underlying the rules that make graphical user interfaces work.

Early user interface (UI) practitioners were trained in cognitive psychology, from which UI design rules were derived. But as the field evolves, designers enter the field from many disciplines. Practitioners today have enough experience in UI design that they have been exposed to design rules, but it is essential that they understand the psychology behind the rules in order to effectively apply them.

In Designing with the Mind in Mind, Jeff Johnson, author of the best selling GUI Bloopers, provides designers with just enough background in perceptual and cognitive psychology that UI design guidelines make intuitive sense rather than being just a list of rules to follow.
