Designing With the Mind in Mind by Jeff Johnson

Designing With the Mind in Mind by Jeff Johnson

A while ago I finished this excellent book on UI Design Principles / Rules: Designing With the Mind in Mind by Jeff Johnson. I do wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in UI Design and the science (psychology, biology) behind UI Design Principles.

The book gives insight into how our brain and visual system works and has lots of examples that show how things go wrong when we don’t take that into account when designing user interfaces. Of course it also contains examples of good UI design. The book is compact and easy to get through, and when you apply the design rules in it, you can back up your design decisions with a solid scientific background.

Thoroughly recommended!
