Modern UI Style Design by Microsoft

Modern UI Style Design by Microsoft | A design journey | Scoop.it
Hans's insight:

First I thought Microsoft made a new design language along with Metro, called Modern UI, and got all confused for a while. Then I read the article and realized I didn't know they had to change the name because of a lawsuit from a German company. Whatever they will call the UI style, after all lawsuits, I can't more than adore the concept: symmetry, maximum use of screen size, large interactive fields and simple hierarchy along with a beautiful appearance - a unique and innovative vision - exactly what Microsoft had to deliver in their competition with Apple. On the other hand I think the Modern UI is less useful for actual computers and laptops since the amount of space for each element will not be in proportion to the screen size and precision of a mouse pointer.

The UI (user interface) is a key feature in order to create a successful user experience. It's built upon content and site architecture to support perception and interaction. I really like Microsoft's design language called "Metro", which is inspired by information systems of transportation nodes. This article describes the how it can be used as a UI concept.
