UI design rules are not simple recipes to be applied mindlessly.
Applying them effectively requires determining their applicability
(and precedence) in specific situations. It also requires balancing
the trade-offs that inevitably arise in situations when design rules
appear to contradict each other. By understanding the underlying
psychology for the design rules, designers and evaluators enhance
their ability to interpret and apply them. Explaining that psychology
is the focus of this talk. It is intended mainly for software
designers and developers who did not take Cognitive Psychology as part
of their university education. This talk is based on Johnson's new
book, Designing with the Mind in Mind (Elsevier).

Jeff Johnson is Principal Consultant at UI Wizards, Inc., a product
usability consultancy (uiwizards.com). After earning B.A. and Ph.D.
degrees from Yale and Stanford Universities, he worked as a UI
designer and implementer, engineer manager, usability tester, and
researcher at Cromemco, Xerox, US West, Hewlett-Packard Labs, and Sun
Microsystems. He has taught at Stanford University, Mills College, and
the University of Canterbury. He has authored articles and chapters on
a variety of topics in Human-Computer Interaction, as well as the
books GUI Bloopers, Web Bloopers, GUI Bloopers 2.0, and Designing with
the Mind in Mind.

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
