Defining Interative Designing


I'm looking to put together a definition of interactive design with specific reference to internet applications.

I'm interested in reading articles or material that deal with this content.

Could anyone suggest appropriate material?

Get involved in UX research! Online Survey (available in english, german or french)


Hi Everyone,

As part of my PhD thesis, I am collecting responses to a questionnaire survey on User eXperience. More than 100 Usability/UX researchers and practitioners have already been invited to perform this exercise and most of them agree on the fact that there is still a definite need for a standardized definition of the term UX.

By sharing your views on UX, your participation in this survey will help bringing the concept of UX to maturity.

Looking for a correct term for Use Case 01 Landing Page.

I am producing IA/UX for a SaaS and need to obtain research specific to the typical layout of a Use Case 01 landing page with call-to-action.

Specifically, my client wants an initial landing page with two calls-to-action buttons with the same visual weight. His justification is that both will eventually lead down conversion paths (one directly to signup, the second to more information). All information I can find advises this has the opportunity to cause some confusion which can hamper conversion rates.

Is interaction design more than skin deep?

Of course it is. I hate these kind of annoying teaser headlines that the
print and broadcast media use to get people to read a news story/watch a
program. But here's what I'm getting at:

In the beginning was Interface Design. Then it was argued that it's more
than 'just' the 'interface', which regular folk take to mean pretty looking
screens -- that it's actually 'Interaction Design'; that we are interested
in matters beyond 'merely' the 'interface', and in fact we would like to
design the entire interaction process.

"Design" in Interaction Design?

After reading a very interesting thread titled "When/Where/How did you decide to be a designer?", I noticed that many came from Art or Graphic Design backgrounds. So...

Would anyone say that one must have an "artsy or visually creative" knack when pursuing "interaction" design, as apposed to "visual" design?
