5 Ways How Whitespace Affects The User Experience | UXploration | Scoop.it

Whitespace is becoming an increasingly popular design element for websites. The termwas originally coined in print design and describes “the absence of text and graphics”. At the same time, whitespace is more than an empty space. It’s also “the overall airiness or density of the page including space between lines of type (leading), text offset around graphics, size of margins, and heaviness or lightness of the fonts”.

Where UX Comes From | UXploration | Scoop.it

With the rise of personal computing in the 1980s and then the Web in the 1990s, many of these trends converged on each other. Graphical user interfaces, cognitive science, and designing for and with people became the foundation for the field of human-computer interaction (HCI).

Hans's curator insight, August 13, 2013 2:19 PM

Finally the math courses included in my engineering education are going to pay for the effort :) Many digital applications are depending on large flows of data that must be visualized in one way or another, and more data leads to more advanced algorithms in order to do it. No matter how much calculus I have studied, most of the raw data circulating the web will be impossible to interpret without being tranformed into a more user friendly format. Consequently designers must accept the challenge to reduce complexity and make the enormous amount of information cosumable for human beings, so why not tell it like stories, becuase that's something we are all familiar with.

Michael Allenberg's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:16 AM

Data interpretation is the skill to develop in the coming years... It is not simply how to read data (or Big Data) that matters, but effectively prioritizing and communicating abstractions into consumables that benefit and guide end-users.
