    • User Experience
      delivering great ux through great ui
    • Who am I?
      What I do for a living?
      Sr. UI Designer @ NOKIA
      How long have I been in business?
      Almost 10 years now
      What I ‘actually’ do?
      Make a ‘consumer’ deliverable out of ‘technical’ deliverable

      HELLO.
      My name is…
      Uday M. Shankar
    • What's User Experience
      Let me try to make it simple
      3
    • 27 June 2009
      4
      Do you SEARCH?
    • 27 June 2009
      5
      Do you Google?
      Why?
    • That’s User Experience
      Now, let’s look at how to get there

    • An Ideal UX Team?
      27 June 2009

    • Or… Wear different hats

    • Anyone can cook?
      UI Design is not everybody’s cup of tea
      UI design demands patience, creativity, out-of-the-box thinking
      UI design demands an instinct to make stuff SIMPLE
      Keep Design & Development as 2 activities.

    • UI Development is NOTabout making screens look better!
    • It’s not about more features
      Being feature-rich is not great
      It’s a basic expectation
      The differentiator is the experience you deliver
      Think about iPhone
      11
      27 June 2009
    • Not just about colors, fonts, pixels
      There is an intended behavior that we want to create & We have no direct control over the user
      But, via design we have means to control the environment and to evaluate the resulting effects
      12
      27 June 2009
    • Do not get carried away
      Many UI designers get carried away with the cool effects provided by the technology.
      Possibility <> Usability
      Cool <> Usable
      13
      27 June 2009
    • Front End keeps changing
      HTML > DHTML > AJAX > Silverlight > ???
      Abstract the UI completely from the business layer
      Let the UI evolve with times
      14
      27 June 2009
    • Follow standards
      Do not break paradigms unnecessarily
      Do not use a lot of colors on screen
      Follow basic UCD & HCI principles while designing
      Do not create Frankenstein components!
      15
      27 June 2009
    • Manage expectations
      Manage expectations using design
      Clients often judge progress based on UI design
      Clients want to see a steady progression of development
      For Users, the UI is the application
      16
      27 June 2009
    • Get your X & Y right
      The position of components on screen is IMPORTANT& The dimensions of components on screen is IMPORTANT
      Drag & Drop is not always uber-cool!
      Control to user is good as long as the system still has control
      17
      27 June 2009
    • Be modular
      Lazy Loading
      Give the user what they need at a time
      Learn from Microsoft
      18
      27 June 2009
    • Do not over-engineer
      Abstraction and perfection is good. But, don’t overdo it.
      Pattern implementations are only as valuable as the problem they solve.
      19
      27 June 2009
    • What you want users to see
    • What users actually see
    • Breath life into your UIs
      22
      27 June 2009
      Animation for aesthetic reasons is good!
      Use subtle transitions to add effects to your application
      Provide instant feedback to user
    • Good Uis & Bad UIs
      Some real life examples

    • Do not hesitate to push the red button
      Be ready to go back to the drawing board at any time.
    • My ultimate metric for Ux
      If the system was a person, how long would it take before you punch it in the nose!

    • Next is what?
      In the 80’s it was SCD
      System Centric Design
      In the late 90’s, it transformed to UCD
      User Centric Design
      What’s next?
      Process Centric Design?
