Library Journal Review

In this nice general introduction to interactive design, Graham discusses how to create functional interactive projects using text, graphics, color, sound, video, animation, 3D, and virtual reality to facilitate navigation and communication. Graham covers visual design, the psychology of color, navigation, storyboarding, working with audiences, prototyping, and testing. Nothing is software- or hardware-specific so this book should have a long shelf life. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
