An Informative Article About User Interface Design

28 Oct

I found an interesting and informative article written by Anastasios-User Interface Design, Getting the Basics Right. Here is the link. http://www.uxbooth.com/articles/user-interface-design-getting-the-basics-right/

As we are doing our big UR3 report, these key principles of user interface design will be very helpful. The author highlights four principles:

  • Visual Chunking: give interfaces a clean and consistent structure by visually separating areas that represent inherently different functionality.
  • Respect the Device: respect the idiosyncrasies of the device for which you are designing.
  • Remove the clutter, not the features.
  • Empathize with the user. Don’t make design decisions lightly.

By the way, I really like the Microsoft Word 2010 example and Apple Mail for OS X Lion example he used to illustrate his ideas.

Have fun!  Find important things we should bear in mind in these blogs!
