The Design of Everyday Things

“The Design of Everyday Things” is a seminal work in the field of design psychology and usability written by Donald Norman, first published in 1988 and revised and expanded in subsequent editions. In this influential book, Norman explores the principles of good design and the ways in which design impacts the usability and user experience of everyday objects and systems.

At the core of the book is Norman’s concept of “affordances,” which refers to the perceived actions or uses that an object or system suggests to a user based on its design. He argues that well-designed objects should intuitively communicate their function and purpose to users, making them easier to understand and use effectively.

Through numerous examples and case studies, Norman illustrates the importance of user-centered design and the pitfalls of designs that ignore the needs and capabilities of users. He discusses common usability issues such as confusing controls, poor feedback, and lack of affordances, and offers practical advice for designing products and systems that are intuitive, efficient, and enjoyable to use.

“The Design of Everyday Things” has had a profound impact on the fields of design, psychology, and human-computer interaction, influencing designers, engineers, and researchers around the world. It continues to be widely regarded as a must-read for anyone involved in the design of products, interfaces, and environments, offering valuable insights into the psychology of human behavior and the principles of effective design.
