Although the dot.com bubble burst long ago, the interactive media industry is still flush with fresh talent, new ideas, and financial success. Digital Experience Design chronicles the diverse histories and perspectives of people working in the dot.com world alongside an account of the current issues facing the industry. From the perspective of older disciplines such as education, fine art, and cinema, this volume investigates how dot.com practitioners balance the science of usability with abstract factors such as the emotional response design can provoke. Contributors from a wide-range of different backgrounds offer autobiographical accounts of their careers in the digital experience design and interactive media industry. Digital Experience Design seeks to borrow from alternative fields that have richer traditions and longer histories in experience design to assist current online designers and practitioners. With in-depth discussion of a variety of disciplines and topics including screen-based design and e-learning, this edited volume is a valuable resource for industry practitioners and students and teachers of interactive media.
