Digital design work involves constantly reconciling use and appearance. This isn't a new or novel struggle; it's inherent to designing, and evident in the gap between applications that look great and those that are highly functional. The book helps web application designers and developers understand visual interface characteristics, and how to make them appeal to, and communicate with people. Published in English and Chinese. doi.org/10.1016/C2012-0-00687-4
Debby and I ran workshops based on the principles in the book at the International UXPA conference and Boston CHI.
