The Mythical User

Taking the mystery out of User-Centered Design


The Mythical User is a weblog written for everyone who deals with products – primarily software, but the principals we’ll discuss will apply to any kind of interface a human being deals with.

Posts will come in 4 categories:  Philosophy and Principles, Strategy and Techniques, Reviews, and Solutions.

Each post will follow a format:

  • The main post, of course
  • A User Centered Design Term, defined for you in plain english
  • An interesting link
  • A recommendation for music to design to
  • An interesting quote related to design

Comments, discussion and questions are always welcome at The Mythical User.
