There are websites that offer information and ones that tell a story. What do you want your website to do? Most sites that try to tell a story don’t do it well because they use a traditional page layout that’s hard to follow.
Walking through IKEA over the weekend with two young children was a healthy reminder of what contributes to an ideal customer experience: innovative product design and thoughtful service design.
Choosing colors for your website is no easy task. With so many colors and color combinations to choose from, where does a designer begin? The color of your site is important because it influences how users feel about your site.
Websites with multiple dropdown menus are known for causing user problems. But how would a unified dropdown menu that displays all of a website’s links in one menu fare?
Have you ever wanted your users to click your links, but didn’t know how to get them to act? When some designers run into this problem they’re tempted to use the words “click here” on their links.
No other wireframing toolkit compares to Interface Libraries. With Interface Libraries, you’ll make wireframes that ooze with beauty and professionalism. Best of all, it’s not going to take you hours to do it.
In today’s age of instant gratification, making users wait too long for your application to load is a user experience issue. If users get the feeling that your application loads too slow, they’ll grow impatient, and spend their time elsewhere.
Sketching isn’t reserved for artists and architects. It’s for interface designers too. Many designers don’t have a solid template they can use to sketch their interface design concepts.
Text labels aren’t the only thing that describe what users are clicking. The two most common affordances on menus and buttons are arrows and ellipses.
Most designers spend a ton of time and energy to make beautiful, pixel-perfect mockups of their interface. With Interface Styles, you no longer have to. Interface Styles gives you the power to add polish to your interface elements in one click.
Signing up for a website is a big commitment to most people. Users who sign up for your site are giving you their personal information. If you misuse their personal information, you could abuse their trust.
