Mobile web use overtook desktop use in 2016, with the rise in the former doubling the fall in the latter. This increase in mobile traffic has made mobile user experience one of the most important factors in the success of a product or website. Providing great user experience is essential from the first second. More than 60% of users will not return to a mobile site that they had trouble accessing, and this means that content, navigation and visual design elements must be twice as intuitive as they are on a desktop. In the face of these trends, designers must constantly keep in mind the point that little screens have very little room for error. Interactive Design for Screen is the result of extensive research centred on the latest designs optimized for the screens of mobile devices. Over a hundred projects appear in this volume, and they showcase the functionality and accessibility of great mobile user interfaces. The designers featured analyse their projects from a variety of perspectives such as product specifications, site purpose and target users, making Interactive Design for Screen is a highly practical and inspiring guide for students and designers who know that a great mobile user experience is nothing less than essential.

In today’s highly digital environment, the pleasure of the touch, smell and weight of paper as we hold it in our hands is taking on new value. In the graphic design sector, technology is taking giant steps forward, providing designers with increasingly sophisticated tools for producing high-impact designs. In this context, print publications are becoming exclusive objects, and this means that they need designs, textures and finishes that make them especially desirable. In the future, the publications that stand the test of time will be those which we wish to preserve because they feature the beauty of handmade objects. Page Design pays tribute to the tradition of print editorial design by focusing on its outstanding contemporary value. This volume offers a panorama of contemporary trends and styles through a selection of one hundred projects of different sizes, from flyers and magazines to posters, catalogues and books. The projects featured are a statement of aesthetic and conceptual principles that take on a special power going beyond the purely visual when placed in readers’ hands. Containing case studies and tips and tricks, this book is full of ideas on page layout, interaction between sections and the optimum way to convey a message. It is a perfect reference work for designers that will rekindle readers’ love of books as objects with an enduring value.
