Designing the user interface: text, colour, images, moving images and sound

Introduction

Unit image

Why is the way something looks important? Text, colour, images, moving images and sound all interact to produce a user friendly environment within a user interface. This unit will help you understand the effect each software component has on the user and explain how a consistent and thoughtful application of these components can have a significant impact on the ‘look’ of final product.

This unit is from our archive and is an adapted extract from User interface design and evaluation (M873) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
