Comment: User Centered System Design (Score 1) 188

by Arbac (#11713459) Attached to: What Makes a Good UI?
As long as you design from data linked to actually users performing actual work, the UI design should become transparent.

I would recommend Designing the User Interface as a good starting point, as well as Contextual Design as a great way to learn how to gather actual user data.

While it is true that everyone has their own individual UI preferences, designing the UI to function well based on actually data instead of what the designers feel will work always provides the best UI. You need to find out how the user actually does their work in order to design a UI that helps them perform it.

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
