Hi there,

I was wondering if you have an ultmate list or at least a couple of hints for us to build a very decent IxD bibliography here in the company.

Anything from Books, Docs, White Papers.

 

Thanks

I tried to post this comment via email but it appears that the email isn't working yet.  So my apologies if this turns into a duplicate comment ...

Semantic Foundry (Will Evans aka Semantic Will) has a great listing on his site (if you haven't seen it already):

http://ow.ly/1fuv1

He calls it the UX Cannon - I couldn't agree more.

Hello tbanzato.

Reference sent to you for Carrie is fantastic. Maybe I miss  specific practice practitioner books. Only to complement list of Semantic Foundry.

  • About Wireframing: I love "Effective prototyping for software makers" by Arnowitz J., Arent M. and Berger N. and "Prototyping. A practitioner's guide" by Warfel T.Z.

 

  • About User Research: "Observing the user experience" by Kuniavsky, "A practical guide to usability testing" by Dumas y Redish. I advise you get a good foundations book about research methods, for example "Research design" by Creswell.


And my 2 silver bullets: "Human- computer interaction" by Dix A. Abowd G.D. and Beale R. and "Interaction design" by Preece J., Rogers Y and Sharp H.

I hope this is useful for you.

Eusebio -
Great suggestions!
I am a huge fan of "Observing the user experience" by Kuniavsky
I believe that you can find the entire book online - maybe in Google books or on the publisher website?
It may be the book that convinced me to go from being an unspecialized 'UX person' to a specialized User Researcher.

Tbanzato -
Good luck building your library.  If you want to email me, I would be happy to share with you some presentations I have created around User Research that have some decent reading lists in them for various topics.

Thanks for starting this thread, tbanzato! And thanks for sharing the link to the UX Canon, Carrie!  I've been trying to figure out which books I should know about, but the prospect is overwhelming to think about. This makes it much easier.

Two books I would throw into the pile

Understanding Your Users: Catherine Courage and Kathy Baxter - useful and complete  reference for planning user observation/field work.

Information Design Handbook by Jenn Visocky O'Grady and Ken Visocky O'Grady - Wonderful reference on creating visuals. Touches lightly on some congnitive theory (e.g. Gestalt theory). I've also found the case studies useful.

A couple that I've purchased recently that I'd recommend (sorry if they're duplicates):

 

Love Steve Krug's books, too.  And I have been meaning to get Web Form Design - have heard great things about it: http://www.lukew.com/resources/web_form_design.asp.  And just heard about Search Patterns...  I could go on and on!  So many great books out there  :-)

For pragmatic tips on ("better") web development you could also have a look at:

 

 

  • Neuro Web Design. What Makes Them Click? (Susan Weinschenk, 2009)
  • Persuasive Technology: Using Computers to Change What We Think and Do (B.J. Fogg, 2003)

 

Cheers,

Albers’ 80 page book describes an experiential way of studying how colors interact with other colors. Albers’ aim is to develop “… through experience – by trial and error – an eye for color”. The constant theme throughout the book is the relativity of color, a complex topic.
