Microinteractions, the UX of the small

  • Sep 10, 2013 · 5:30 PM

It's the fine details that can take a design from average to amazing.  As designers we know this, we encounter it daily, sometimes as friction (poor design) others as just effortless interaction (good design).

However too often when we design, in the headlong rush towards the final product, we push aside the finer details to just get to the usable baseline.

The journey towards encompassing a good UX is about seeing these finer microinteractions and knowing how to make them effective and enjoyable.

Looking at design from the bottom up we will look at how to engage all the senses to build better triggers, rules, loops and modes.

Seed Book: Microinteractions - Dan Saffer

The book website, and the reference poster are also available.

Please note venue lifts lock out by 6pm, don't be late.

    For those of you that didn't attend - semantically speaking you didn't miss anything as for an interaction to occur you needed to have been present.... - it's a bit like does a tree make a sound when it falls if no one is there to witness it ;)

      That said there is no interaction without people.. thats just a transaction. Those that missed it, go read the book, its well worth it. I will not be posting the slides.

      Thanks for the heads up, that's going to be hard to fix if the issue is with AWIA.. :(

    I won't be able to make this one. The family are already upset I'll be away at TechEd the week before, so I'll be making sure they remember what I look like.

      you better not miss the next one!
