Due to the cancellation of the last meeting due to COVID19, we have set up an online meetup (via Zoom).

Our next book is Designing with the Mind in Mind by Jeff Johnson: 

In this completely updated and revised edition of Designing with the Mind in Mind, Jeff Johnson provides you with just enough background in perceptual and cognitive psychology that user interface (UI) design guidelines make intuitive sense rather than being just a list or rules to follow.

Early UI practitioners were trained in cognitive psychology, and developed UI design rules based on it. But as the field has evolved since the first edition of this book, designers enter the field from many disciplines. Practitioners today have enough experience in UI design that they have been exposed to design rules, but it is essential that they understand the psychology behind the rules in order to effectively apply them.

In this new edition, you'll find new chapters on human choice and decision making, hand-eye coordination and attention, as well as new examples, figures, and explanations throughout.

This book club will be on Zoom. Participants will be sent a link closer to the date. It is free. UX Book Club Sydney is open to professionals who have an interest in User Experience Design or anyone working in the field of product design. Whilst this club has been traditionally organised for the UX community of Sydney, as it is now an online meetup it is open to people in other geographic locations. We're looking forward to hearing from you.
