About this book

The Screen Design Manual provides designers of interactive media with a practical working guide for preparing and presenting information that is suitable for both their target groups and the media they are using. It highlights background information and relationships, clarifying them with examples, and encourages the further development of the language of digital media. In addition to the basics of  perception and learning psychology, ergonomics, communication theory, imagery research, and aesthetics, the book also considers design navigation and orientation elements. Guidelines and checklists, along with the comprehensive design of the book, support the transfer of information into practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Frank Thissen has given us a wonderful survey of the many factors affecting screen design for multimedia products. … The pages are well illustrated … . The color pages caught my eye … and will be yet another useful reference. … The Appendix contains a thorough list of references, broken down into many categories. This list will be a great resource … . If you could read only one book on the factors affecting screen design, let it be this one." (Rebecca C. Hall, Technical Communication, Vol. 52 (2), May, 2005)
