Creative UI Design Examples for Great UX
UX (User Experience) is all those elements and factors related to the user's interaction with a particular environment or device which generate a positive or negative perception of the product, brand or device. UX is subjective and focused on use. The standard definition of UX is "a person's perceptions and responses that result from the use or anticipated use of a product, system or service". These factors are related to design and usability, but also to the emotions and feelings generated in the user, accessibility, brand trust... In the case of the web, the user's experience with the device is not a matter of concern to web designers: big hardware companies do the job of building our machines and computers. However, web designers have much to say about the user experience that the interfaces and websites that we develop generate: it is a key element of our work! GUI to present information: The interface controls should be intuitive and easy to use. UI Elements and Techniques:

10 fantastic examples of UI design In web design, great user interface, or UI design, is all about helping the user to accomplish a given task as simply and efficiently as possible. While the look and feel is undeniably important, at the core of a great UI is function: in terms of navigation, it should be intuitive to the point of being invisible. As soon as a user gets lost, or can't work out where to go, the UI has failed. This list of websites and apps may have different design principles and different functions, but they have one thing in common – effective UI design that satisfies all of the above and more.

The difference between a UX Designer and UI Developer « Melbourne, as in the city. I’ve recently found myself trying to explain the difference between the skills I bring to a project as a UX Designer and why I’m not able to cover the role of a dedicated UI Developer. There is of course a necessary overlap between the skills-sets in these roles, which is a good thing. And some individuals have a broader coverage of skills than others. However, people outside of these roles don’t always appreciate the specialist skills and focus that is required to work within them. This as simply as I can describe the different skills required for each role:

The Future of User Interfaces User interfaces—the way we interact with our technologies—have evolved a lot over the years. From the original punch cards and printouts to monitors, mouses, and keyboards, all the way to the track pad, voice recognition, and interfaces designed to make it easier for the disabled to use computers, interfaces have progressed rapidly within the last few decades. But there’s still a long way to go and there are many possible directions that future interface designs could take.

Principles of User Interface Design Clarity is job #1 Clarity is the first and most important job of any interface. To be effective using an interface you've designed, people must be able to recognize what it is, care about why they would use it, understand what the interface is helping them interact with, predict what will happen when they use it, and then successfully interact with it. While there is room for mystery and delayed gratification in interfaces, there is no room for confusion. Clarity inspires confidence and leads to further use. #25 – Notes for job seekers in UI design By Scott Berkun, April 2003 Looking for jobs is tough. I remember when I looked for my first industry job ten years ago, how frustrating it was. I had everything to prove, and every desire to prove it, but few opportunities. And worse, by the time I graduated in May of ’94, my friends were gone: they moved away with new jobs. Many had jobs lined up before the spring semester even started.

8 Intriguing User Interface Designs from the MIT Media Lab To see what lies ahead in the coming years for user interfaces, some of my colleagues at PwC recently visited the MIT Media Lab. The researchers behind the “Fluid Interfaces” project are toiling away on dozens of intriguing prototypes that leverage breakthrough technologies such as gestures, haptics, wearable computing, 3D, projection, and data visualization, to name a few. While some of the user interface designs are useful but not necessarily transformative, such as the digital sticky note, others have the potential to change industries as we know them, such as the Augmented Product Counter that will merge brick-and-mortar and online shopping experiences.

It has to be designed from the ground up to be an integral part of the patient care experience”. Can’t argue with that now, can you? Particularly when coming from a practicing physician. And why argue at all? The user interface in any software product is the easiest thing to get right.
