Visual Interface Design for Windows: Effective User Interfaces for Windows 95, Windows NT, and Windows 3.1

Visual Interface Design for Windows: Effective User Interfaces for Windows 95, Windows NT, and Windows 3.1

Formerly the Director of Visual Interface Design at Microsoft, Howlett headed the team that designed Windows 3.1, 95 and NT. In this definitive resource she presents the graphic design principles and hands-on software development techniques essential to create visually functional and attractive Windows applications. Features a stunning four-color design with hundreds of illustrations.Windows 95 seems destined to dominate the marketplace of personal computer operating systems for awhile, so Win95 interface designers have, to my mind, a moral obligation to provide the most pleasing possible aesthetic experience for their huge audiences.

This is a jewel of a book for interface design tailored to Win95. It points out how to take advantage of the great features of the interface tools — and how to avoid the siren’s call of gratuitous graphics. Its topics range broadly from clear coverage of design aesthetics, human factors, and the psychology of visual perception to issues specific to Win95. The world of desktop computing would be a better place if just one chapter — “Common Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them” — was required reading for all Win95 developers. Highly Recommended.

Edwardian and Victorian Hats designed by Darna’s East Angel Harbor Hat Shoppe are influenced by the Victorian and Edwardian Eras and I embrace the finery of these eras to design my re-creations. I’m dedicated to designing Victorian and Edwardian hats and accessories that have both an element of realism combined with imagination; my hat designs transcends time and I truly want to enchant you and assist you on your journey to somewhere in time!

Miss Spirit of Virginia City is designed over a gorgeous brand new Made in the USA pink wool hat base that has been licensed by the Red Hat Society. The edge of the brim is accented with French style pink heart beads and deep pink gimp. The hat band is baby pink silk. There’s three beautiful and dainty light pink roses backed by velvet leaves and lots of gorgeous fluffy pink ostrich plumes billowing over the top of the crown(pink feathers may vary from light to medium pink as they’re hand dyed and each dye lot turns out slightly different). There’s a beautiful baby pink silk bow in the back. This hat is a real eye-catcher and I’m sure you’ll love wearing!
