The Resonant Interface: HCI Foundations for Interaction Design

The Resonant Interface is a book by Steven G. Heim that covers the theory and practice of human-computer interaction (HCI) and interaction design. The book was published in 2008 by Pearson/Addison Wesley and is based on the concept of active learning that integrates theory and practice. The book aims to provide a rich foundation of HCI research and knowledge for building usable interfaces for software and Web sites.

Overview of the book

The book consists of 17 chapters that are organized into four parts: Part I: Interaction Frameworks and Styles, Part II: Interaction Design Process, Part III: Discovery, and Part IV: Design. Each chapter begins with a discussion of a particular HCI topic or concept that is then explored and put into perspective for interface design. The topics are then set in a design scenario using authentic interface problems and solutions. The book also includes 16 color plates that illustrate various interface examples and concepts.
