UXPALA BookClub: A Conversation with Everett McKay, Author of Intuitive Design Online

Jun 13, 2018 · Santa Monica, United States of America

UXPALA BookClub: In conversation with Everett Mckay, author of Intuitive Design
Make your designs immediately self-explanatory and easy to use, and never “agree to disagree” again about whether they are intuitive!
Your mission: To design an intuitive UI for your next project. Your problem: You’re not sure what “intuitive UI” really means. Worst problem: Your team isn’t sure either, so your discussions about intuitive design are unproductive and opinion-driven. If this sounds familiar, Intuitive Design: Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI will give you the insight, principles, and guidelines you need to get the job done.

You’ll learn the objective and actionable steps for designing intuitive UIs—for mobile, web, and desktop apps. Mission accomplished!

New designers: A great introduction to design thinking, and will help make your approach to design much more objective.
Intermediate: It helps you leverage your existing knowledge and fills in a lot of gaps. You will have a more solid understanding of design, which will help you sell your designs more persuasively.
Experts: It helps you establish a shared framework, vocabulary, and process to help your team communicate and evaluate their ideas more effectively.

So, do you need to read this book? Here's a simple test: Suppose you need to convince a manager or client that a design is intuitive (or alternatively, unintuitive and needs to be improved.) What does that conversation look like now? Is it mostly subjective, personal opinion? Are there a lot of vague metaphors and questionable assertions? A lot of "agreeing to disagree"? If this sounds familiar, Intuitive Design is exactly what you need to do your best design work and get your team onboard.
