Five Dimensions1:35 with Hope Armstrong
Let's look at the five dimensions of Interaction Design.
Five dimensions of Interaction Design:
- words (1D)
- visual representations (2D)
- physical objects/space (3D)
- time (4D)
- behavior (5D)
- Foreword - "What Is Interaction Design?" from the book Designing Interactions (download PDF) by Gillian Crampton Smith
Interaction design consist of five dimensions that define the interactive
They are words, visual representations,
physical object or space, time, and behavior.
They're abbreviated as 1D, 2D, 3D, 4D, and 5D respectively.
The first four dimensions were defined by Julian Crampton Smith, and
the last dimension, behavior, was added by Kevin Silver.
The words dimension includes all text, including buttons.
Visual representation encompasses graphics, images, typography, and icons.
The physical objects and space dimension involves the device that's being
used to access the product or service.
This can be a touchpad on a laptop, a mouse on a desktop computer, a stylus
on a tablet, fingertips on a mobile phone, or a screen reader on a computer.
Time refers to media that changes over time, such as animation, video, and sound.
Behavior is how users perform a task and the response to the user's actions.
These dimensions give us a framework to talk about interactions.
But what are interactions anyway?
In the next video we'll take a look at the different types of interactions.
