Article Title: Interface Design Factors Impact on Core Affect
by Ismail M. Romi

Design factors considered to be critical in the field of human-computer interaction. However, empirical results in this area are inconsistent, and an overall synthesis across the numerous empirical studies seems lacking. The main objective of this study is to find the most important design factors that attract users, predict affective design, and develop a model that enables the evaluation of design factors along with the core affect. The main finding of this study is that design factors varies in their impact on core affect, where the empirical evidence supports the impact of text's font-size, menu direction, fore-color have on users core affect, the other design factors including menu location and alignment, back-color, icons type and size, and font type and alignment doesn't have significant impact. Therefore the study adds to the literature on design factors that needs more emphasis.
Keywords: design factors, graphical objects, core affect, emotions, human-computer interaction
