About desigining for the 'visceral design'

Hello, I'm Toshiyuki in Japan.
I'm a junior usability consultant.

I've read Don Norman's "Emotional Design" and the related article "Personas,
Goals, and Emotional Design" at uxmatters.com.

Now , I want to learn more about "Mood or Inspiration boards" or anything
The primary motivation for it is I want to design for the visceral level
more logically like usability , or desigining for the behavioral level.

All thoughts welcome, thanks!

about this list (not in FAQ)

Hi All,

Why are there so many job offerings in the USA (a lot of them for senior interaction designers). I haven't yet seen one in the neighbourhood of Germany or Belgium, or The Netherlands. I know there are some Dutch people on this list, so can someone explain me why this is the case? Is our profession more mature there, is it just a bigger population or is it just me ;-)



Search for businesses by name, location, or phone number.

usability of tab focus

Hi All,

Some expert coorperate users want to have a lot of fields on a form so they can input large amounts of data at once, in a specific flow. They like to use the Tabkey to put focus on a field. Should all fields using tabfocus events, or only the most used input pattern? What is the best practice?

Imagine you have to design usability for one form with the fields: A,B,C,D,E,F,G
The average input pattern would be A,B,D,F.

Should I have a tab order like this

[TabIndex, field]
1. A
2. B
3. C
4. D
5. E
6. F
7. G

or like this

[TabIndex, field]
1. A
2. B
3. D
