To study the visual thinking of user needs in interaction design, explore the interaction of mental models, interfaces, and interaction methods, Through the methods of comparative research and case analysis, on the basis of research visualization and marketization, summarizes the current valuable practice and exploration methods in the fields of information and interaction design. In the context of current design psychology, analyzing user needs and using reasonable visual thinking presentation methods to meet the user’s potential visual requirements, stimulate the user’s mental image instinct, speed up the interaction process, and bring better user experience to the potential users, finally improves the core competitiveness of the product.
