Description

This is the Safari online edition of the printed book.

Web design is more than just creating clean code and sharp graphics. A site that really works fulfills strategic objectives while meeting users needs. Even the best content and the most sophisticated technology won't help you balance those goals without a cohesive, consistent user experience to support it.

The Elements of User Experience cuts through the complexity of user-centered design for the Web with clear explanations and vivid illustrations that focus on ideas rather than tools or techniques. Jesse James Garrett gives readers the big picture of Web user experience development, from strategy and requirements to information architecture and visual design. This accessible introduction helps any Web development team, large or small, to create a successful user experience.
