Norman Cooking

Graeme Aymer

Aymer, G. (2001). Norman Cooking. Create Online. Issue 8, January. p38-40

On GUIs limited prospect:
“It really is a good design, but it really didn’t scale well. Where’s it not appropriate is when there are huge amounts of information. The website, if you like, is an entirely graphical interface, but as it gets more complex, the user gets overwhelmed.” (Dr Donald Norman quoted p32)

Another article in Create magazine by Graeme Aymer this time profiling Donald Norman. It was a useful primer to Norman's work. Since reading this I have got around to buying the 2002 edition of "The Design of Everyday Things".
