Interaction design is the new field that defines how our interactive products behave. Between the technology that powers our devices and the visual and industrial design that creates the products’ aesthetics lies the practice that figures out how to make our products useful, usable, and desirable.
This thought-provoking new edition of Designing for Interaction offers the perspective of one of the most respected experts in the field, Dan Saffer. This book will help you
Learn to create a design strategy that differentiates your product from the competition
Use design research to uncover people’s behaviors, motivations, and goals in order to design for them
Employ brainstorming best practices to create innovative new products and solutions
Understand the process and methods used to define product behavior
It also offers interviews and case studies from industry leaders on prototyping, designing in an agile environment, service design, ubicomp, robots, and more.
Dan Saffer (San Francisco) is a founder and principal of Kicker Studio, a San
Francisco-based design consultancy for consumer electronics, appliances,

Things that collects physical interfaces for design inspiration. He also oversees
a wiki for the collection of new interaction paradigms called Interactive
