Simple UX Design for Greater Results
Want users to love it? Keep your UX design simple for optimal results.
User experience design (or UX design) is essential for the success of every development project. There is nothing less appealing than to find a web application confusing, difficult to navigate, or unbearably slow. Users are looking for quick and easy access to what they want, when they want it. If a business’s web application or SaaS product is slow and difficult to navigate through, they will simply not go back to it. To ensure the best user experience, it is important to incorporate user experience (UX) design that produces smooth functionality and is focused on the user. Let’s take a look at a few things that will maximize your user interface (UI) and UX design while producing an experience that is visually appealing and easy for the user to interact with.
Know who you are trying to reach.
The key for both UX and UI being successful is by having a good understanding of the user. A UI designer can create the coolest visual application, but if the functions are clunky and slow, then the user will not use it. If a programmer analyst develops a smooth user interface, but less than appealing design, users will not be as apt to use the application. Having a good understanding of what your existing and potential users are looking for and wanting from the system can help tailor your application to reach your target audience. Ask questions about what your app is solving for the user. What is the best way to deliver the content? What should it look like to attract other users?
Don’t overcomplicate it; focus on the ease of it.
Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. Users are not looking for the applications and websites that are the most complex and have the most things to do. They prefer something that is easy for them to navigate and enjoy and enables them to accomplish the task they set out to do quickly. Simplicity is important to think about for both UI and UX. Good UI design includes attention to a number of important elements, including: fast load times, clear path for users to follow, and logical, simple, and intuitive controls. Keeping the UI simple will help improve the user’s experience and increase the likelihood of them returning.
There are times when businesses have easily functioning web applications that look good on the desktop but once moved to a mobile device, it does not run as smoothly. Access to applications via mobile devices is continuing to grow. It is important that the UX design is consistent throughout all platforms. The way the process works throughout the application should be consistent and follow a logical pathway. Each feature should be self-explanatory and approachable enough to attract and make them feel it is worth their time. No matter the device, the process and readability should be consistent throughout.
UX design can be the perfect answer to take an application to the next level. If not incorporated properly, it can detract users. Keeping your UX design focused on the user and to simplify while yet enhancing their experience will help you reach your desired results.
