Apple, Audi, Braun oder Samsung machen es vor: Gutes Design ist heute eine kritische Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Produkte. Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte. Don Norman fordert ein Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Technologie mit dem Ziel, dass Designer und Produktentwickler die Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Handlungsweisen der Nutzer in den Vordergrund stellen und Designs an diesen angepasst werden. The Design of Everyday Things ist eine informative und spannende Einführung für Designer, Marketer, Produktentwickler und für alle an gutem Design interessierten Menschen. Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois. Mitte der Neunzigerjahre leitete Don Norman die Advanced Technology Group bei Apple. Dort prägte er den Begriff der User Experience, um über die reine Benutzbarkeit hinaus eine ganzheitliche Erfahrung der Anwender im Umgang mit Technik in den Vordergrund zu stellen. Norman ist Mitbegründer der Beratungsfirma Nielsen Norman Group und hat unter anderem Autohersteller von BMW bis Toyota beraten. „Keiner kommt an Don Norman vorbei, wenn es um Fragen zu einem Design geht, das sich am Menschen orientiert.“ Brand Eins 7/2013 „Design ist einer der wichtigsten Wettbewerbsvorteile. Dieses Buch macht Spaß zu lesen und ist von größter Bedeutung.” Tom Peters, Co-Autor von „Auf der Suche nach Spitzenleistungen“

Once, human-computer interaction was limited to a privileged few. Today, our contact with computing technology is pervasive, ubiquitous, and global. Work and study is computer mediated, domestic and commercial systems are computerized, healthcare is being reinvented, navigation is interactive, and entertainment is computer generated. As technology has grown more powerful, so the field of human-computer interaction has responded with more sophisticated theories and methodologies. Bringing these developments together, The Wiley Handbook of Human-Computer Interaction explores the many and diverse aspects of human-computer interaction while maintaining an overall perspective regarding the value of human experience over technology.

Experience-centered design, experience-based design, experience design, designing for experience, user experience design. All of these terms have emerged and gained acceptance in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Interaction Design relatively recently. In this book, we set out our understanding of experience-centered design as a humanistic approach to designing digital technologies and media that enhance lived experience. The book is divided into three sections. In Section 1, we outline the historical origins and basic concepts that led into and flow out from our understanding of experience as the heart of people's interactions with digital technology. In Section 2, we describe three examples of experience-centered projects and use them to illustrate and explain our dialogical approach. In Section 3, we recapitulate some of the main ideas and themes of the book and discuss the potential of experience-centered design to continue the humanist agenda by giving a voice to those who might otherwise be excluded from design and by creating opportunities for people to enrich their lived experience with and through technology.

Contextual Design is a user-centered design process that uses in-depth field research to drive innovative design. Contextual Design was first invented in 1988 and has since been used in a wide variety of industries and taught in universities all over the world. It is a complete front-end design process rooted in Contextual Inquiry, the widespread, industry-standard field data gathering technique. Contextual Design adds techniques to analyze and present user data, drive ideation from data, design specific product solutions, and iterate those solutions with customers. In 2013, we overhauled the method to account for the way that technology has radically changed people’s lives since the invention of the touchscreen phones and other always-on, always-connected, and always-carried devices. This book describes the new Contextual Design, evolved to help teams design for the way technology now fits into peoples’ lives. We briefly describe the steps of the latest version of Contextual Design and show how they create a continual immersion in the world of the user for the purpose of innovative product design.

Wir befinden uns inmitten eines epochalen Wandels im Kräfteverhältnis unserer Gesellschaft, denn während die Ökonomien den Schwerpunkt von industriegefertigten Gütern auf Dienstleistungen und Erlebnisse verlagern, treten die Unternehmen die Kontrolle ab und nehmen ihre Kunden nicht mehr als „Endverbraucher“ wahr, sondern als Beteiligte an einem wechselseitigen Prozess. Im Laufe der jahrhundertlangen Geschichte der kreativen Problemlösung haben sich Designer das nötige Handwerkszeug zugelegt, das ihnen hilft, die „drei Räume der Innovation“, wie Tim Brown sie bezeichnet, zu durchlaufen: Inspiration, Ideenbildung und Umsetzung. Seiner Überzeugung nach müssen diese Fähigkeiten nun über die gesamten Unternehmen verstreut werden. Und das funktioniert mit einem der innovativsten Denkwerkzeuge zur Entwicklung von Ideen und zur Lösung von Problemen, dem Design Thinking. Im ersten Teil dieses Buches wird ein Rahmenwerk vorgestellt, das hilft, die Grundsätze und Methoden zu erkennen, die großartiges Design Thinking ermöglichen. Hier wird gezeigt, wie Design Thinking von einigen der innovativsten Unternehmen der Welt praktiziert wurde und zu bahnbrechenden Lösungen inspiriert hat. Der zweite Teil soll dazu anregen, nicht zu kleckern, sondern zu klotzen. Anhand drei großer Bereiche der menschlichen Aktivität – Unternehmen, Märkte und Gesellschaft – zeigt Tim Brown, wie aus dem Design Thinking heraus Wege entstehen können, um Ideen zu entwickeln, die unseren heutigen Herausforderungen gerecht werden. Dabei muss sich das Design Thinking in den Organisationen „aufwärts“ bewegen in die Nähe der Vorstandsetagen, wo strategische Entscheidungen getroffen werden. Denn Design ist zu wichtig geworden, als dass man es allein den Designern überlassen sollte. Tim Brown zählt zu den prominentesten Personen auf dem Gebiet von Design und Innovation weltweit. Er ist CEO und Präsident von IDEO, das Unternehmen, das die Apple-Maus und den Palm V entwickelt hat. Tim Brown spricht regelmäßig über den Wert des Designs und von Innovationen, unter anderem auf dem Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos oder bei TED Talks. Er berät zahlreiche Fortune 100 Unternehmen. Seine Arbeiten wurden bereits in der Axis Gallery in Tokio, dem Design Museum in London und dem MOMA in New York ausgestellt.

Designing Interactive Systems: People, Activities, Contexts, Technologies is an exciting, new, forward-looking textbook in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). Authoritative in its coverage, this innovative book takes a top-down approach, starting with what is familiar to students and working down to theory/abstract underpinnings. This makes it suitable for beginners with a less technical background as well as advanced students of HCI and can be used at all stages of the curriculum for courses in this dynamic field. The book focuses on and explores this emerging discipline by bringing together the best practice and experience from HCI and interaction design (ID). The approach takes traditional human-centred concepts from HCI, but recognizes that we have gone beyond computers and are concerned with designing engaging interactions between people and a wide range of devices, products and systems. New areas explored include information appliances, supported cooperation and ubiquitous computing and systems.
