The design process of an interface must balance the meaning of its visual elements and the user experience (UX) of those elements from a technical engineering perspective.
As humanly as possible
The system should speak the language of the user and use familiar concepts, rather than system oriented technical terms. It should also follow real world conventions, making information appear in a natural and logical order.
UI/UX balance must take place in order to create a system that is both usable and adaptable. User interface design is involved in a wide range of projects from web based systems, to software and app development, to commercial SaaS systems. All of these projects involve much of the same basic human interaction, yet also require some computer skills and knowledge. Interface design should seek to minimize the user's memory load - making objects, actions, and options visible. The user should not have to remember information from one part of the dialog to another.
Designing Sites for Better UX
In our website building process we are going beyond great looking design and focusing also on user experience (UX). Some of the benefits of improving user experience include increased customer loyalty, higher conversion rates, lowered abandon rates and even decreased customer service requests. While the benefits are great, the concept of good user experience can be a bit fuzzy. There’s no magic formula or set of rules for designing a web site that provides an excellent UX.
User Interface Design
It's all about aesthetics, simplicity, design, elegance...usability matters... Interaction with the user interface design should be natural and the navigational elements should make sense immediately. Colors, shapes and fonts should be consistent throughout. This strengthens the brand identity and gives the user a clear idea of what they can interact with. The framework goes through rigorous usability testing and feedback until we feel it provides a sublime UX.
How It Plays Into Your Website Strategy While the aesthetic aspect of a web site is important in creating a positive experience for web visitors, it’s only goes so much. More companies are realizing the importance of focusing on user experience design (or UX design) and investing heavily into it to make sure that their websites are optimized for UX. In fact, companies are making it a central part of their strategy as it affects everything that happens on their web sites.
Web usability is a broad topic. In a nutshell, we’re talking about giving the user exactly what they want, throughout the user interface design, without making them work for it. Exceeding those rudimentary needs for content by presenting a beautiful design on top of that is the ultimate goal. However, it is of primary importance that the design serves it’s function by delivering content to the user in a sensible way.
Human Interface Design
We at 7th Web make sure that user actions are always logical and instructions for use of the system are always visible or easily retrievable whenever appropriate. We design it with humans in mind.
Usability, Accessibility & Experience
We believe that user interface design is important for several reasons: usability, accessibility & experience. The more intuitive the user interface - the easier it is to use. The more aesthetically pleasing - the more desirable it is to the end user.
Shorter Learning Curve
The easier it is to use, the shorter the learning curve is to start efficiently operating the software. The better your user interface, the more your users will like to use it and tell others, all of that will help increase your sales and growing product popularity.
