Wiley Announces About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design, 4th Edition

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

The interaction design profession is thriving with the success of design-intensive companies, priming customers to expect “design” as a critical ingredient of marketplace success. Consumers have little tolerance for websites, apps and devices that don’t live up to their expectations, and the responding shift in business philosophy has become widespread.

Professionals and students involved in creating interactive technologies and products will find About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design, 4th Edition (Wiley; ISBN: 978-1-118-76657-6; September 2014; US $ 50.00) to be a comprehensive guide that includes new information on touch interfaces, mobile apps, screen size considerations and more. Taking the worldwide shift to smartphones and tablets into account, the new full-color interior and unique layout better illustrate modern design concepts.

Designers and developers looking to remain relevant through the current shift in consumer technology habits will find About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design, 4th Edition to be an essential resource for:

    Contemporary interface, interaction, and product design methods
    Design for mobile platforms and consumer electronics
    State-of-the-art interface recommendations and up-to-date examples
