UX Design: Foundations would be a helpful book for someone in a new or junior role that is unfamiliar with user experience design and wants to learn to help them as a team member in a small project. It will also be a helpful book for experienced project managers who have a user experience work stream as part of their project, and just want a general sense of the field.
As UX Design: Foundations focuses primarily on commerce sites, it is not as helpful for intranet, applications, or even complex sites. There are some elements that are important across all types of sites, such as information architecture, home page hints, etc., but again, all of these are at a high level.
UX Design: Foundations for Designing Online User Experiences is a fast, easy read, and it's true to it's title in that it provides foundational information for readers to get a very high level perspective of user experience design and the process of working with clients and site users.
Authors are premiere UX consultants in Great Britain, hired by sizable companies, frequently retailers. They write from such perspective, dealing with websites with budgets covering several specialists including visual designer, developer, marketer, product managers, campaign managers, etc. Excellent tips on how to involve committees and consensus-building during web UX design. Not for smaller websites.
The book has weaknesses. 1. User design, I believe, should be tied into search engine and web marketing, and this approach doesn't. 2. The book is interested in profitability and returns on investments, but I feel it should have stronger emphasis. 3. Tie into social media in design is absent.
Incorrect title and profitability weaknesses--4 star.
Who would particularly benefit from this book?
1. Buyers of UX services would learn what UX people do.
2. A trainee for UX would learn a lot!
3. A web designer without a UX department who suddenly lands a large project.
For anyone starting out in web development, this book is a great way to learn how to design for the user experience. It is much more indepth than other books I've seen on the subject and could easily be used as an classroom book for UX Design 101.
If you work on project teams and with large companies this book is very helpful in outlining the approach to designing for the user experience. If your work is mostly for small projects, small websites, etc, this book may be overkill. However, this book will give you a very good and thorough understanding of how to design with the user in mind and this is something all web designers/developers need in know regardless of the size of the project. The overall concepts can be easily adapted and trimmed down for smaller projects.
I think all web designers should have a core understanding of UX Design and with this book the authors do an excellent of job of providing that.
That, like all the books I've bought from Smashing, is quite good. Well laid out and with thought given to the audience. I look forward to their books as they contain high quality information without trying to extract a king's ransom to purchase them. Not all publishers can say that.
UX or user interface/experience design is/was one of my favorite aspects of application design. Designing something simple enough that people can and will use it while retaining sophistication is indeed a challenge. The web is moving through and past Web 2.0 and straight to Web 4 or so. App/web design has not necessarily kept up. This book provides some solutions.
Did I wade through the entire thing - nay. I did as I do often now, cherry pick ideas. And for people like me, Smashing does a great job of allowing just that.
If you've an interest at all in UX/UI design, pick it up. Worth your time and money.
