Abstract

A set of principles and a conceptual tool for designing for intuitive interaction have been developed based on previous experimental work. This tool has been tested with designers. The first test with one designer showed that analysing other products that the intended user group interacted with enabled him to understand key aspects of products they would already be familiar with, and include them in the design to allow it to be used more intuitively. A refined version of the tool was then tested by seven groups of postgraduate designers. They were asked for feedback via questionnaires. This paper will discuss the designers’ work, their feedback, and the further refinement of the tool. The main finding from the trials is that the tool works well but needs to be easier for designers to understand.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
