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:

What will our (future) interfaces feel like? The visual language of our interfaces has gone through a lot of changes over the past decade. Remember what the Web 2.0 interfaces felt like? Giant type, ginormous forms, and buttons that would make Fitt’s Law insignificant. These days it’s about the content. “Nothing says Send Message, like the words “Send Message”. With touchscreen, a lot of these rules change. What I find interesting about this interface is that it breaks a lot of our current rules for interfaces. “I think the important thing is to never take anything for granted and question everything — all the known interface design conventions, the clichés and rules of the genre. The biggest problem with gestures is that they look fun to use, but aren’t always that great. But, I don’t think that’s who this is designed for… or, should I say, when this is designed for. I think it’s interesting to watch interfaces evolve. “We’re not just making pretty interfaces.

Common Misconceptions About Touch By Steven Hoober Published: March 18, 2013 “44 pixels is not a physical size. … We cannot even translate 44 pixels, or points, to a single actual size.” Touchscreens have been with us for decades—and they’ve been the mobile input method of choice for many of us for about 5 years. In fact, many junior designers and developers—or at least those who were late to the mobile party—have never owned a mobile phone for which buttons were the primary input method. But there are still very few designers who seem to know how touchscreens actually work or how people really interact with them. You Can’t Rely on Designing 44-Pixel Touch Targets Even with iOS clearly in second place behind Android, the Apple standard size for touch targets sticks with us, but 44 pixels is not a physical size. Physical sizes matter, so all good guidelines are in millimeters, inches, typographers’ points, or other real-world scales. Do Different Finger Sizes Really Matter?

Cinco páginas para alimentar la adicción a las (buenas) imágenes [Acceso Directo] Little Red (La Pequeña Roja) Foto: Shlomi Nissim Las ilustraciones y fotografías han sido una de las grandes beneficiadas del auge de Internet. Ahora tenemos miles de páginas en las que vemos todo tipo de imágenes regadas por Internet. Esto es tanto una ventaja como una desventaja: Ventaja porque los productores de este tipo de contenido tienen la oportunidad de darlo a conocer fácilmente sin necesidad de tener que pagar elevados costos de impresión. La desventaja es que la misma facilidad de compartir las imágenes ha crecido como una bola de nieve, y ahora es difícil encontrar buenas imágenes, o por lo menos la que se esté buscando. Afortunadamente , hay sitios web que identificaron esto y crearon plataformas en las que los usuarios y los productores puedan compartir sus imágenes con facilidad, protegiendo la propiedad intelectual de los autores y filtrando todo lo que puede ser ‘basura’.

How Mobile Technologies Are Shaping a New Generation - Tammy Erickson The cohort I like to call the “Re-Generation” began to take shape around 2008. Individuals at the formative ages of 11 to 13, those born after about 1995, were part of a substantively different world than the one that had shaped 11 to 13 year olds over the preceding fifteen or so years. In an earlier post, I discussed the impact the Global Financial Crisis had on the formation of this new generation. Technology, of course, has also been a powerful influence on the Re-Generation, so much so that Bill Gates proposed that we call this next wave Generation I, for Internet. With due respect, most who study the generations would say that Generation Y (those born from 1980 to 1995) was our first generation of Digital Natives — unconsciously competent users of both computers and of the Internet. Mobile technology. Wireless communication. Kids 11 to 14 spend, on average, 73 minutes a day texting The average teen sends more than 50 texts a day
