Path towards Advance Web Designing Part 4 – User Interface Design – 1

In previous parts, we have explored several aspects of designing for web and mobile software. Now, keeping that threads continue, in this part we will get in-depth knowledge about the user interface and its designing practices as well as processes.

 

If we try to define user interface in simple words, we can say that it is a system exclusively made for the end-users only. Here users expect that interface should meet their needs, whatever they expect from the software product, with an ease. Therefore, if we define characteristics of UI as well as its benefits, we can say:

 

  • Intuitive the user interface is, easier to use
  • As it is easier to use, it is less expensive  
  • The better user interface reduces training costs, as it is easier to train people to use it  
  • The better user interface reduces support costs, as it reduces the help/support calls people need to use it  
  • The better user interface increases user satisfaction with the work that you have done on it, as it liked by the more users to use it

 

Principles of UI Designing

Now question is that how to design the better user interface described above. Yes, designing and programming the better user interface are demanding many things at a time. Of course, there are some principles to do better UI designing, let’s check them.

 

Structure of UI:

  • Organize the user interface purposefully
  • Design UI in meaningful and useful ways
  • UI design should based on clear and consistent models
  • UI design should apparent and recognizable to users
  • UI design should put related things together and separate unrelated things
  • UI design should differentiating dissimilar things and making similar things resemble one another

 

Simplicity of UI:

  • UI design should simple at every aspect
  • UI design should make common tasks simple to do
  • UI design should communicate clearly and simply in the user’s own language
  • UI design should provide good shortcuts that are meaningfully related to longer procedures

 

Visibility of UI:

  • UI design should keep all needed options and materials for a given task clearly visible
  • UI design should not distracts the user with extraneous or redundant information
  • UI design should  not overwhelm users with too many alternatives
  • UI design should not confuse users with unneeded information

 

Feedback of UI:

  • UI design should informed users for actions or interpretations made
  • UI design should informed users for changes of state or condition
  • UI design should informed users for errors or exceptions that are relevant and of interest to the user
  • UI design should informed users for changes through clear, concise, and unambiguous language familiar to users

 

Tolerance of UI

  • UI design should be flexible and tolerant
  • UI design should reduce the cost of mistakes and misuse by allowing undo and redo tasks
  • UI design should prevent errors wherever possible by tolerating varied inputs and sequences
  • UI design should prevent errors by interpreting all reasonable actions

 

Reuse of UI

  • UI design should reuse internal and external components and behaviors
  • UI design should maintain consistency with purpose rather than merely arbitrary consistency
  • UI design should reduce the need for users to rethink and remember

 

After looking at the principles of the best UI designing, we think that good user interface designing team is a must for success of any website or mobile app designing in the market. Fortunately, Lujayn has enough talents in form of experts and experienced pool of UI designers besides graphics designers, UX designers, and programmers to achieve final success.
