Designing Interactions: Introduction

Bill Moggridge

Moggridge, B. (2006) Designing Interactions, MIT Press, pp 3-14.

In his introduction Bill Moggridge discusses the origins of Interaction Design.

"I realized that I had to learn a new sort of design, where I could apply as much skill and knowledge to designing satisfying and enjoyable experiences in the realm of software and electronic behaviours as I had with physical objects. (…) Like industrial design, the discipline would be concerned with subjective and qualitative values, would start from the needs and desires of the people who use a product or service, and strive to create designs that would give aesthetic pleasure as well as lasting satisfaction and enjoyment."
