Designing Future-Proof UI – Medium Increasing The Longevity If we want our UI design to stand the test of time and go beyond the conventional expiry date, we can incorporate a number of principles into our workflow and way of thinking that will make it less likely to cause big changes in the future, or put another way, more likely to cause little change.

The 4 Essential UX Documents Every Designer Needs When it comes to UX documentation, wireframes and prototypes are certainly among the most important. But that’s just the beginning. We’ve actually found four other documents to be extremely practical for everyday design. What sets these four apart is that they help designers understand the users, and that more than anything determines the design’s success.
