Interface for mobile navigation device for inside a book store

May 2003

When walking in a huge bookstore, it would be nice to have a portable device that shows you where things are. My concern was the layout of the touch-screen. The screen should be not too big, the buttons not too small, and still the information given should be clear to the user.

The primary focus was on the pictograms. I designed several pictograms for the facilities and departments of the bookstore, and tested them on understandability. The interface was built in Macromedia Director.

This page shows some of the pictograms I designed. The next shows the interface of the navigation device.
