Digital Experience Design

Ideas, Industries, Interaction

Although the dot-com bubble burst long ago, the interactive media industry is still flush with fresh talent, new ideas, and financial success. Digital Experience Design chronicles the diverse histories and perspectives of people working in the dot-com world alongside an account of the current issues facing the industry. From the perspective of older disciplines such as education, fine art, and cinema, this volume investigates how dot-com practitioners balance the science of usability with abstract factors such as the emotional response that design can provoke. Including in-depth discussion of screen-based design and e-learning, this volume is essential for industry professionals and students alike.

"The subject of this book is primarily web design, or the design of online experiences. It aims to provide a number of approaches from different academic and industrial contexts which may provide useful paradigms for the practical implementation of experience design by designers and artists."
