Descripción del producto
"Here [McKay] offers a guide to designing user interfaces by drawing on principles and common-sense insight about communication. There are no prerequisites, he says, no assumptions about the reader's field or level of experience."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013 "The best teammate a designer can have is a communication specialist to look over your shoulder. Having Everett's book is the next best thing to having him on your team."--Bert Keely, Architect of Windows Pen and Touch "McKay practices what he preaches – UI is Communication is relevant, readable, entertaining, and chock full of useful examples."--Carolyn Snyder, Snyder Consulting
Reseña del editor
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

I gave a presentation to my development team, using some of the content from the book, and it was well received. I then recommended it to all the software engineers and the book has been one of the most sought out books in the department. I now tell the team to buy their own copy because I find myself needed to refer back to it often.
Everett offers a great set of 10 principles that on their own made the book worthwhile. His examples and explanations break the complexities of UI design into simple to understand concepts that are easy to apply immediately.
As a long time advocate of incorporating emotional outcomes in UX design, I was pleased to see an entire chapter dedicated bringing emotions to UI design.
The book is easy to scan if you're the type that doesn't read cover to cover. He does a nice job calling out key concepts so you browse for specific topics of interest that you can then deep dive into for more details. There's a lot of content but it's quick and easy to consume.
I would recommend this to anyone that would like to end the debates about UI decisions, and wants to design UI's that people can not only use but also make them feel good using it.
Everett is training us to differentiate ourselves by making communicative UI. Why not be the ones to make the good stuff?
