About What I Do—
Human-Computer Interaction

Introduction to Human-Computer Interaction Stanford University Program

Talking about user experience design, including the various layers of design and application. We could also talk about it in terms of the elements of user experience design and how it relates to information architecture and human-computer interaction: From the concrete—Web as a software interface—to visual design, interface design, interaction design, functional specifications, user needs, site objectives, and to the task orientation.

Or, from the—Web as a hypertext system—to visual design, navigation design, information architecture, content requirements, user needs, to site objectives—information oriented, from the abstract to the conception (Jesse James Garrett).

Prototyping Axure RP

Using Axure RP without actually coding, creating components, prototyping, and diagrams for Websites. It helps to automate the process of creating high-quality documents and for rapid prototyping. One can create prototypes of Websites and apps without coding (Figure 1).

Synopsis of Skills

I work with clients on developing excellent blueprints (conceptual designs promoting user-centered design principles). Doing design research and card sorting helps to establish user-centered design for a Website (Figure 2).
