A unique resource to help software developers create a desirable user experience

Today, top-flight software must feature a desirable user experience. This one-of-a-kind book creates a design process specifically for software, making it easy for developers who lack design background to create that compelling user experience. Appealing to both tech-savvy designers and creative-minded technologists, it establishes a hybrid discipline that will produce first-rate software. Illustrated in full color, it shows how to plan and visualize the design to create software that works on every level.

Today's software demands attention to the quality of the user experience; this book guides you through a practical design process to achieve that goal
Approaches the mechanics of design with a process inspired by art and science
Avoids the abstract and moves step by step through techniques you can put to use immediately
Covers planning your design, tested methods, how to visualize like a designer, psychology of design, and how to create software that developers will appreciate
Explores such elements as choosing the right typeface and managing interactivity

Design for Software: A Playbook for Developers brings the art of good design together with the science of software development to create programs with pizazz.
