With rich imagery, Interactive Design introduces the different UX players, outlines the user-centered design process from user research to user testing, and explains through various examples how user-centered design has been successfully integrated into the design process of a variety of design studios worldwide.

After 
a 
stroke, 
patients 
are 
immediately 
forced 
to 
deal 
with 
their 
new 
physical 
limitations. 
ese 
often 
include 
partial 
or 
complete 
immobilization 
of 
one 
side 
of 
the 
body. 
e 
rehabilitation 
process 
is 
slow, 
exhausting, 
and 
may 
cause 
people 
to 
neglect 
their 
therapy. 
is 
only 
delays 
their 
recovery, 
often 
leading 
to 
depression 
and 
further 
frustration.

User-centered 
design 
(UCD) 
is 
a 
design 
philosophy 
that 
puts 
the 
user 
of 
a 
product, 
application, 
or 
experience, 
at 
the 
center 
of 
the 
design 
process. 
In 
UCD, 
a 
designer 
strives 
for 
a 
detailed 
understanding 
of 
the 
needs, 
wants, 
and 
limitations 
of 
the 
people 
who 
will 
use 
the 
end 
product 
and 
then 
makes 
design 
choices 
that 
incorporate 
this 
understanding. 
UCD 
requires 
that 
designers 
not 
only 
analyze 
and 
foresee 
how 
users 
engage 
with 
a 
product, 
but 
they 
also 
test 
their 
designs 
in 
the 
real 
world 
with 
actual 
users. 
Testing 
is 
an 
essential 
component 
of 
UCD, 
because 
it 
is 
often 
very 
difficult 
for 
designers 
to 
intuitively 
understand 
how 
users 
will 
perceive, 
understand, 
and 
use 
their 
designs.

User-Centered 
Design

Why 
Do 
We 
Need 
It?
