An Icon is Worth 1,000 Words

An Icon is Worth 1,000 Words | UXploration | Scoop.it

Iconography gets to the heart of what UX designers live and breathe: they can make or break the usability of an interface. It therefore stands to reason that their use is context–specific. Like every other area of user experience design, icons are best suited for the target audiences that will most profit from their use. It’s up to us as communicators, designers, and creators to identify those audiences and get the most out of our icons.

TREND SPOTTING: The design and development of 'cards' that pushes pieces of relevant information via mobile your way: We're starting to see this trend being realized already: Focused Marketing and movement AWAY from engine searches

 

ex. "With Google Now, Google is rethinking information distribution, away from search, to personalised information pushed to mobile devices. Their design pattern for this is cards."

Dean Meyers's curator insight, September 10, 2013 7:50 AM

The use of modular cards, probably most visibly used first by Pinterest, may be the solution for visually driven, non-heirarcheical sites that have equal use across the desktop to the tablet to the handheld environment. If you are working across many screens and have despaired over making your site work equally well, this may be the answer.
