Let's get together late August at Centerline Digital in Raleigh to discuss Jeff Johnson's "Designing with the Mind in Mind." We'll geek out over the cognitive "why" behind design rules and discuss the always-fascinating topic of how visual design can affect our perceptions and behaviors.
You can buy the book here: http://www.amazon.com/Designing-Mind-Simple-Understanding-Interface/dp/012375030X
Taken from one reader's Amazon review:
"Developed from a course titled "Human-Computer Interaction" that he taught at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, Dr. Jeff Johnson -- who holds degrees from Yale and Stanford, experience at Xerox and author of the book, "GUI Bloopers" -- offers contextual explanations as to how we visualize and categorize information, data and images in such a manner that engineers and programmers can design user interfaces in the most effective manner. It's a well-written, insightful and very practical guide that will be of interest to anyone interested in the how-and-why of computer/machine interface design.
Topics covered include:
Written in an easy-to-understand narrative, lecture-format with dozens of illustrations in each chapter, readers will find this book to be a delightful and welcome primer detailing the fundamental psychological principles behind effective design rules."
Centerline has plenty of after-hours street and lot parking available right out front and the book club happens at the big tables right inside the door.
