Pressestimmen

Sketching User Experience is, nominally, a book about product design. But it would be just as accurate to say that it's a book about software development, or, more generally, about the often broken process of bringing new products to market, with examples ranging from the iPod to an orange juicer. "Hardly a day goes by that we don't see an announcement for some new product or technology that is going to make our lives easier, solve some or all of our problems, or simply make the world a better place," writes Bill Buxton in the preface to his book. "Few of these products survive, much less deliver on their typically over-hyped promise." Why, Buxton asks, are we not learning from these expensive mistakes? Why are we not fundamentally rethinking the process of product development? Sketching User Experience (Morgan Kaufmann, 2007) is a book born of the frustration of an industry insider. Principal researcher at Microsoft Research (MSFT) since late 2005, Buxton has spent decades in the trenches of computer science including a stint at the storied Xerox PARC (XRX) and at the front lines of the software industry. (Businessweek)

Kurzbeschreibung

Sketching User Experiences approaches design and design thinking as something distinct that needs to be better understood-by both designers and the people with whom they need to work- in order to achieve success with new products and systems. So while the focus is on design, the approach is holistic. Hence, the book speaks to designers, usability specialists, the HCI community, product managers, and business executives. There is an emphasis on balancing the back-end concern with usability and engineering excellence (getting the design right) with an up-front investment in sketching and ideation (getting the right design). Overall, the objective is to build the notion of informed design: molding emerging technology into a form that serves our society and reflects its values.

Grounded in both practice and scientific research, Bill Buxton’s engaging work aims to spark the imagination while encouraging the use of new techniques, breathing new life into user experience design.



  • Covers sketching and early prototyping design methods suitable for dynamic product capabilities: cell phones that communicate with each other and other embedded systems, "smart" appliances, and things you only imagine in your dreams
  • Thorough coverage of the design sketching method which helps easily build experience prototypes-without the effort of engineering prototypes which are difficult to abandon
  • Reaches out to a range of designers, including user interface designers, industrial designers, software engineers, usability engineers, product managers, and others
  • Full of case studies, examples, exercises, and projects, and access to video clips that demonstrate the principles and methods

3.0 von 5 Sternen Where's the Beef? 18. Juni 2009
Von T.D. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm a user experience and interaction design professional, so here's my take from a slightly more informed perspective. As of 2009, this book is frequently recommended for UX practitioners through the UX Book Club movement.
What's good about the book is that it's shiny. It's stirring and inspiring, and offers a lot of wisdom along the way about the nature of the best design processes and the importance of lightweight sketching and trying, trying, trying. It will make you feel very good about design, whether you do it or know people who do, and I think that's why it's caught on so much with the UX Book Club.
On the other hand, many UX people want their books to provide useful frameworks or other practitioner-focused guidelines. This one doesn't, really. This is not a problem if you're looking for a more theoretical treatment of design. Of course, most practitioners aren't--many of them, underscoring one of Buxton's main points, sneer at "theory" in an excellent demonstration of what's wrong with designers. The problem is when a book suggests it's one thing but is actually another. Of course, a "theory" book would sell about as well as cold dog poop, so...

It's got a stunning design-related bibliography for the serious practitioner or researcher, and good tips for people starting out. It may well remind you of the right answer as you read. It's not going to make you a designer; arguably, it may not even make you a better designer in most situations. I can think of about a dozen UX books you should buy before you get this one. It's worth reading, but I don't know about a purchase. To paraphrase the author...it's designed right, but I don't know if it's the right design, or if it presents itself accurately as what it really is.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great read with tips on creating the future cheaply 7. Juni 2007
Von Nick Gogerty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Sketching User Experiences by Bill Buxton

This is a great book, for anyone involved with innovation, product management, communication of new ideas or product development.

Bill Buxton has put forth some great examples of what a Sketch is how it is a prelude to a prototype and how to "create" the future cheaply for testers and user groups to experience things with in expensive and fast tools. The idea is to create rapid examples of future good and services to see how well they work.

As Buxton mentions in the book, fail fast and early, learn fast and early. Redesigning a product or relaunching one is very expensive. This is a great read and deals with products and services in their "wholistic" setting. A new idea exists in a context and that context determines its success or failure. I would strongly recommend you buy this book or e-mail me and I might just lend you my copy. I keep only 1 of 10 books I read, but this one I will be holding onto or lending out.

Some fun quotes from the book:

Tell me and I forget, Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand. Confucius

And a personal favorite of mine from an anthropologist:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Meade

Also from Buxton himself: Innovation in process trumps innovation in product. The idea is that corporations that innovate processes or better yet internalize innovation as a process will win hands down over those focused on tweaking a product.

And finally Buxton closes the book with a quote from T.E. Lawrence:

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.

Buxton's last words are: May you dream in the day.

This isn't your average designer hand book and if you want to be an above average creator this is a powerful tool.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great handbook on design thinking 28. Mai 2007
Von Stephen L. Alexander - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you're interested in ways to improve the process of design and design thinking, this is a book for you. The theme is sketching for design but the underlying idea is really about a better design process. I found it extremely practical and thought that the early chapters did a good job of conveying both the creative and business aspects of design...something most design books I've read don't discuss together. If you're a designer, this book should be in your library. If you're in business and design plays an important role in your product or service, this book should be in your library.

4.0 von 5 Sternen On design and the designer 23. Januar 2008
Von Pirkka Rannikko - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book because it was recommended by Andy Rutledge in his
podcast "Design View". I knew it wouldn't be bad given the nature of
the podcast and the host but I really wasn't sure what to expect
either. With no expectations or biases I started reading and later
found out that it was the ideal way to experience this title.

If had expected a practical book with a more hands-on approach on user
interface design, I would have been disappointed. The book discusses
primarily on how we should do design rather than explaining how to
design any particular things. Bill Buxton also writes about the role
of the user experience design and the designer itself in today's
businesses. The best thing in the book is that the content is full of
interesting stories and rich examples of user experience design in
real life. The text moves from stories to theory to examples and back
again keeping the reader hooked even when the subject at hand might be
a bit too heavy to digest on the first reading. Everything is well
written and the author more than "knows his stuff". The examples come
with extraordinary pictures that are a great source for inspiration.
The book is also a good reference of other books about the subject.

If you are looking for a hands-on guide or a text-book to user
experience/ interface design this not your pick. Also it is not a book
for usability enthusiasts or engineers either. Sketching User
Experiences is a book for those designers and would-be designers who
want to get new ideas and perspective on their profession and the
design business itself.

At least I am sure that I'll be sketching more in the future than
before reading this book...

5.0 von 5 Sternen vital, practical, inspiring 4. Oktober 2007
Von J. Galore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book pulled me in like a fictional thriller, but I read it little by little, ensuring I had quality time and head space to savor each chapter. Bill Buxton's narrative style is engaging but not wasteful--it's got the deep content of a textbook, yet is very fun to read.

Every single page has something you can apply as a designer or software engineer. There are so many great ideas and insights that I found myself pausing often, staring off into space, visualizing my own scenarios and sketches, jotting notes in my notebook.

This highly influential book has already helped me get breakthroughs in my thinking I couldn't have achieved without diving in and acting things out, drawing, or building a simple model. It has shaped the way I approach my work.
