UI Design Principles training

April 12, 2014 Leave a comment

Last year, I have been working on my own design principles training (simply called “UI Design Principles”) for quite some time. In the last couple of months I gave the training a number of times to different groups, some internal, some external. What was common for all session was the enthusiastic response and participation of the course members, which made it a joy to share my knowledge!

The training is a 4 hour session on topics that help you to make a great GUI design. It features stuff like gestalt principles, Hicks & Fitts’s law, the working of the eye and the processing of images by our brain, progressive disclosure, responsiveness, forgiveness, etc. It is aimed at anyone who is active in the design of user interfaces in any way and it’s not about technology! So if you are a project leader, component owner, team leader, process engineer, architect, software engineer, etc. participating in creating a product with a user interface, this training can help you. If you are interested drop me, or ICT Automatisering, a message!

UI Intervision group @ ICT

March 9, 2013 1 comment

At ICT Automatisering we’ve formed ‘intervision groups’.  In these groups, professionals with common knowledge about a subject gather regularly and share information. Recently, we’ve formed the “UI Intervision group”, for which I have become one of the chair men. In this group we currently have about 10 professionals that have a keen interest in User Interfacing.

We meet about 5-6 times a year in the late afternoon /early evening at the ICT Eindhoven office. First meeting, my collegue and fellow chairman Hans Hendrix gave an introductory presentation about Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).  At the second meeting I gave a presentation about UI Design Principles. Next meeting will be about developing the UI of apps on the Android platform.

For future meetings, we are considering external speakers. So if you are a specialist in the domain of User Interfacing and are willing to hold a presentation of 1 to 1,5 hours, please do contact me with details of the subject!
