Earlier this week Jake Burghardt at Flashbulb Interaction emailed to tell me about his new eBook entitled: ”Working through Screens: 100 Ideas for Envisioning Powerful, Engaging, and Productive User Experiences in Knowledge Work”.
I’ve not had chance to read it all yet, but what I have read so far is very good, so I saw no point in delaying sharing it with you all!
Working through Screens is a reference for product teams creating new or iteratively improved applications for thinking work. Written for use during early, formative conversations, it provides teams with a broad range of considerations for setting the overall direction and priorities for their onscreen tools. With hundreds of envisioning questions and fictional examples from clinical research, financial trading, and architecture, this volume can help definers and designers to explore innovative new directions for their products.
It is available in 3 formats:
- Online html
- A 143 page pdf
- A highly summarised ‘Idea Cards Edition’
I love the ‘Idea Cards Edition’ idea – so much valuable information is lost when it’s bound up in a book that people haven’t the time to read!
