This is our third blog which will outline useful resources recommended by our consultants. This week we are looking at forms, information architecture and mobiles.

Forms:

Web form design

by Luke Wrobleski
Web form Design
A great reference guide to dip in and out of. Good practical solutions and examples for all levels, ideal for designers.

Forms that work

By Caroline Jarrett
Forms that Work

In comparison to Wrobleski’s book, this is about the whole process of form design, considering personas, persuasion etc. It’s like an instruction manual.

Information Architecture:

Information archicture for WWW

byLouis Rosenfeld & Peter Morville
I A front cover
An absolute bible for Information Architecture. It needs no other description.
 

Card sorting

byDonna Spencer

cardsorting-md

Extremely useful book for anyone thinking about or who has conducted card sorting. It is laid out in such a way that you can dip in and out of the section of interest. Not just for beginners, this book provides great pieces of advice to seasoned Information Architecture professionals.

 

Mobiles:

Handheld Usability

by Scott Weiss
mobile-usability-weiss1

Useful for an introduction, but now very dated.

Designing the mobile user experience

by Barbara Ballard
 
 

Good, if a little too academic. Pre-Safari but introduces issues faced by handsets/providers pre-Safari.

Next weeks blog, the last of the recommended reading guide, will look at design & usability resources.
