Universal Principles of Design


I don't think I remember seeing any posts/threads on this book, and it
amazes me. I finally made it to the last page a couple of days ago,
and even though I was already familiar with a large chunk of the
concepts discussed in it, I am in awe of how gracefully and succinctly
the authors presented each one.

The book covers 100 principles that apply across various desgn
disciplines. Every principle is presented in a 2-page spread.

Interaction of men with products

Dear all

I was wondering if someone is working with the emotional/affective interaction of men specifically with artefacts/products. Any reference on empirical (or theoretical) research/method regarding this subject is warmly welcome.

Different Approach to Highlighting Required Form Fields

Most of you are familiar with forms that highlight required fields. The problem with that is that most fields are required, so you end up having to highlight everything creating a clutter of asterisks or sub-labels.

I want to share with you a different approach that is much more minimalist. Feel free to chime in and let me know what you think.

Read the article: When to Highlight Required Form Fields

Need Help with Data Collection

Hi Folks.

I'll be conducting a study to analyze the impact of
ego, caffeine, work load, and Daylight Savings Time on
the social dynamics of email discussion groups, as I'd
like to better understand which of these factors most
directly fuel indulgent sniping.

If you'd like to help me with this project or you too
think we need much more petty bickering, please
contact me immediately.

Thanks in advance!

Do you Yahoo!?

What do you think of conference give-aways?

Help the IxD12 committee make some good design decisions. interaction 12 | Dublin is well on its way to being organized and we want to make sure we meet all your expectations. if you can help us with the issue of physical give-aways I'd be greatly appreciative. There is even a question in here for prospective sponsors to let us know what they think.

Easy to read = Difficult to Remember

I found this blurb on Engaget very interesting:


"...[a Princeton study] has shown that readers retain information more reliably when they are challenged with so-called "disfluent" fonts..."
