Details

This month our speaker will be the renowned Everett McKay.

Having an intuitive UI is a top goal for every design project, yet surprisingly few people have a strong understanding of what this concept really means. Designers are no different. (A quick test: ask some designers to define it. Most likely you won’t be impressed by their answers.)

By attending this talk, you will learn what it means for a UI to be intuitive. You will learn a practical definition, the attributes required to be intuitive, and the levels of intuitiveness. Ultimately, you will learn how to help your team design UIs that are more self-explanatory and require less training and documentation.

You will see these concepts applied to a variety of real design problems. Finally, you will learn that not all UIs need to be intuitive, and when it is a good idea to have unintuitive UI—strategically rather than accidentally.

By sheer coincidence, Everett has recently written a book called "Intuitive Design: Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI"--now available on Amazon (http://intuitiveuibook.com). He will give away three signed copies. All attendees will receive an Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI poster.
