Description

Sound can profoundly impact how people interact with your product. Well-designed sounds can be exceptionally effective in conveying subtle distinctions, emotion, urgency, and information without adding visual clutter. In this practical guide, Amber Case and Aaron Day explain why sound design is critical to the success of products, environments, and experiences. Just as visual designers have a set of benchmarks and a design language to guide their work, this book provides a toolkit for the auditory experience, improving collaboration for a wide variety of stakeholders, from product developers to composers, user experience designers to architects. You'll learn a complete process for designing, prototyping, and testing sound. In two parts, this guide includes: Past, present, and upcoming advances in sound design Principles for designing quieter products Guidelines for intelligently adding and removing sound in interactions When to use voice interfaces, how to consider personalities, and how to build a knowledge map of queries Working with brands to create unique and effective audio logos that will speak to your customers Adding information using sonification and generative audio

Author Biography

Amber Case is an anthropologist and user experience designer studying the symbiotic interactions between humans and machines-and how our values and culture are increasingly shaped by new technologies. She was CEO and co-founder of Geoloqi, a location-based software company acquired by Esri in 2012. Aaron Day has spent the last 17 years as an experience design generalist and subject matter expert on sound for products. His clients include Audi, Samsung, Qoros, Telefonica, Mozilla, Vodafone, Sprint, Bosch, AT&T, Siemens and Wire. He developed the first-ever UI sound-strategy for Samsung's mobile products, and he led the sound design effort for the launch of Firefox OS. His work spans languages, cultures, and continents to deliver relevant and lasting sound design for everyday products used by millions of people.
