Understanding the Connection Between UI and UX Design

There’s a lot of confusion on the difference between UI/UX design. UI design is all about working on the user interface that people interact with in order to navigation a site or use a function of an app. UX design is about working on the user’s experience as a whole. This includes load times, clean presentation format, valuable content, etc. Basically, UI falls under the umbrella of UX but when people talk about UI it’s precisely about UI in of itself rather than bringing in the entire topic of UX. Despite that, there is a cause and effect between a great user interface and the overall user experience. The user interface on a website determines how intuitive and easy it is for the user to browse the website and find what he is looking for. As a result, a well-designed UI results in an improved UX. Similarly, a well-designed UI […]

UI design has come a long way and many more companies are embracing different user interface designs for their website and apps.

How to Improve Your Web App’s User Interface Design

While there is a lot of focus on UI design for smartphone apps and websites, web apps are often neglected.

The Business Case for UX and UI Design

For many companies with a well designed site, the idea of paying for user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design is a stretch. The big thought is “how much more can paying for these design services even help us?” That is an understandable question and is probably the primary thought for businesses with limited budgets, but the reality is that investing in these two design areas can produce a ROI that justifies the expense. There are several metrics to look at when looking for ROI. The first obvious one is the conversion rate. For many budget conscious companies, a possible increase in conversion rate often justifies a marketing expense. Even a one to two percent increase for a sales page can change everything for a company, especially if the company has a consistent flow of traffic to that page.

UI Design and Integration of User Experience

Whether you’re designing a website or an app, UI design plays a critical role either project’s success. The interface is what gets users engaged into using the website or app in a way you want them to. A well designed user interface can open the doors to achieving your website’s or app’s goals while a poorly designed one closes them off. Many businesses understand this concept but they don’t think about creating the optimal UX design (user experience) in conjunction with the UI. While UI is the actual tool which users use to interact with a website or app, UX is the actual interaction or experience. This can be hard to understand, so the best way to explain it is through an example. The UI on a website is the navigation menu which is usually located on the top or sidebar. The UX is the purpose behind the navigation and […]

Make Sophisticated User Interface Designs

The idea of creating sophisticated user interface design sounds like a paradox. When most people think about UI design, they automatically connect it to simplicity. However, things can’t always be simple when it comes to designing more complex products such as mobile apps that help users solve complicated problems and offer them wide array of features at their disposal. So if that’s the dilemma that you are facing, here are some tips to help you create sophisticated UI designs that are optimally designed and provide a great user experience. First, approach the design from the mindset of function over form. Start by making it concise and clear what your app does. Your app will probably have various features so you want to make sure that user will intuitively understand what they are and what they do. Eventually, the form will get more sophisticated but you want to start by making […]
