  • 9. 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.

  • 10. UI Development is NOTabout making screens look better!
  • 11. 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

    27 June 2009
  • 12. 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

    27 June 2009
  • 13. Do not get carried away
    Many UI designers get carried away with the cool effects provided by the technology.
    Possibility <> Usability
    Cool <> Usable

  • 14. 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
  • 15. 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!

    27 June 2009
  • 16. 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

    27 June 2009
  • 17. 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
  • 18. Be modular
    Lazy Loading
    Give the user what they need at a time
    Learn from Microsoft

  • 19. 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.
