User interface design is a challenging, multi-disciplinary activity that requires understanding a wide range of concepts and techniques that are often subjective and even conflicting. Imagine how much it would help if there were a single perspective that you could use to simplify these complex issues down to a small set of objective principles. In UI is Communication, Everett McKay explains how to design intuitive user interfaces by focusing on effective human communication. A user interface is ultimately a conversation between users and technology. Well-designed user interfaces use the language of UI to communicate to users efficiently and naturally. They also recognize that there is an emotional human being at the other end of the interaction, so good user interfaces strive to make an emotional connection. Applying what you learn from UI is Communication will remove much of the mystic, subjectiveness, and complexity from user interface design, and help you make better design decisions with confidence. It's the perfect introduction to user interface design.

  • Approachable, practical communication-based guide to interaction and visual design that you can immediately apply to projects to make solid design decisions quickly and confidently
  • Includes design makeovers so you can see the concepts in practice with real examples
  • Communication-based design process ties everything from interaction to visual design together


使用者介面設計是一項具有挑戰性的多學科活動,需要理解一系列常常主觀且甚至相互衝突的概念和技巧。想像一下,如果有一個單一的觀點可以將這些複雜問題簡化為一小組客觀原則,那會有多大的幫助。在《UI is Communication》中,Everett McKay解釋了如何通過關注有效的人類溝通來設計直觀的使用者介面。使用者介面最終是使用者和技術之間的對話。設計良好的使用者介面使用UI的語言有效且自然地與使用者溝通。它們還認識到在互動的另一端有一個情感豐富的人,因此良好的使用者介面努力建立情感聯繫。從《UI is Communication》中學到的知識將消除使用者介面設計中的許多神秘、主觀和複雜性,並幫助您自信地做出更好的設計決策。這是使用者介面設計的完美入門。
