UX Design: Academic papers reading list

Categories Design, UX Design
I pulled this list of papers (and books) whilst reading “Universal Principle of Design” by William Lidwell. The following seemed interesting from a design perspective, and from those that I’ve found access to and read they’ve yet to be boring:

  • “All That Glitters: A Review of Psychological Research on the Aesthetics of the Golden Section” by Christopher D. Green, Perception, 1995
  • “Did Mozart Use the Golden Section?” by Mike May, American Scientist,March-April 1996

  • “The Visible Problems of the Invisible Computer: A Skeptical Look at Information Appliances” by Andrew Odlyzko, First Monday, 1999
