   schema:reviewBody ""Let's Face it, some of the best application developers and multi-media programmers are also some of the worst graphical user interface (GUI) designers. You can't really blame them though. With such powerful tools offering so many terrific options at their disposal it's hard for developers to resist the temptation to use as many as possible. Unfortunately, the end result is usually a cluttered screen with an interface that is unfriendly and functionally useless." "In this book, internationally celebrated ergonomics expert Wilbert O. Galitz does for the art of GUI design what Leonardo did for the art of Renaissance painting - he explains what works and what doesn't and why. Galitz explains how the eye reacts to colors, cascading windows, overlays, and text placement. With the help of dozens of examples of well-designed as well as poorly designed screens, he lays out clear and easy-to-follow guidelines that enable all programmers and multimedia developers to design functional, picture-perfect GUIs."--Jacket." ;
