Design
A subject that exists across multiple disciplines
As Engineer
The design process considers the F3…
Which F3 is …
Form
Shape and size of
an item
Fit
Associativity of an item to another
Function
Action that an item
performs
Form
                    Fit



                          Function




                  User Interface Design



As Inter...
Sometimes
Designers overly dwell on F3
As a Result
Other essentials lose focus
Essentials
That mainly concern users
Such as…
Finish
The texture and feel of the item…
Finish
that generates sensation and reaction
But MOST Importantly…
Meaning
Creates the idea, impression and interpretation…
Meaning
that forms the essence or core of the design
Think About It
In interaction design, we
are designing for…
Humans…
Not machines!
Our Users
Make sense of our designs and react to them
So Don’t
Just consider Form, Fit, Function
Always Include
Finish and meaning in your designs
