User Experience Design Guide on Kickstarter

Software design consultancy Jackson Fish Market hopes to raise $9,999 on Kickstarter for a book called Making Things Special. This title contains essays and illustrations on developing exceptional user-friendly experiences. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “The book is divided into three sections. The first covers the history and context of creating user experiences today. The second covers the role of the user experience designer. The third gets down to brass tacks in terms of techniques and specifics on creating the user experiences themselves.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
