How To Make Good User Interfaces

A dated (1999) article that stands well the test of time. What are the key steps to organize a good interface design project? If you are responsible for interface design issues this one page article from Microsoft is for you. "The most important step toward good interface design is understanding the problems your users need you to solve. Specifications for projects are often created in a vacuum: Managers or executives decide that product X or feature Y is critically important, but not much research is conducted into what the real users of the product need or want. Before you start writing code, you need to understand who your users are, what they do all day, and what problems they have with whatever it is your product is going to replace. If you were a tailor, you wouldn't make a tuxedo without first getting the customer's measurements."
