Design - Deepstash

36 STASHED IDEAS

The wheels need to keep turning and you have a deadline to meet. This is a common justification for why UX is not prioritized. It’s also a common way of spotting whether your organisation has understood what UX really is. User Experience design is not a process that your team has to adhere to, it’s a mindset. You should always keep a superior user experience in mind when you are designing and developing your product. Therefore, it is advisable to consult an experienced UI/UX design agency .

7. Use clear, recognizable, and consistent icons

Skeuomorphism, the design practice of making items resemble their real-world counterparts, is your friend, but you should only take it so far. Having a disk icon for saving or a printer icon for printing is intuitive, but don’t invent new concepts or representations. Limit yourself to reusing well known visual concepts.

4. “Rule of thumb for UX: More options, more problems.”

— Scott Belsky, Chief Product Officer

Simplicity is everything when it comes to great UX. As Albert Einstein famously said, “Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple.” The user experience of any product should be as straightforward as possible; as soon as the user lands on a website or opens an app, they should be able to navigate from A to B without even thinking about it. Great UX design is about simplifying the user journey — and this means getting rid of all and any elements that aren’t absolutely necessary.
