Modern UI Style Design by Microsoft

Modern UI Style Design by Microsoft | UX Design | Scoop.it

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. /Hans

Exploration Of Single-Page Websites | Smashing Magazine | UX Design | Scoop.it

Navigation is evolving aligned with new technologies and the multi-device landscape. Web sites show advanced behavior implemented by java script and flash. Global and hierarchically structured layouts are challenged by one page layouts, with a dynamic information surface that adapts according to the interaction with users. Sometimes it's great to have the Web site under control, never being sent to an unknown destination wondering "where am I", "where can I go from here" etc. but sometime it can't get worse and instead it makes you wonder "where in the wild west can I find my information". I think architecture and interaction must be balanced according to the Web site's content and functionality in order to be usable. This article presents a few inspiring examples. /Hans

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular | UX Design | Scoop.it

Sometimes a little thing change the face of the world, on LinkedIn it's the one-click endorsement. I think it's really a great idea from LinkedIn to introduce this possibility. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It took LinkedIn nine years to reach 187 million members. It took the professional social network about one month to pass 200 million endorsements.


Endorsements are LinkedIn’s lightweight version of recommendations. The one-click, vote-of-approval option was released in late September; it offers members a quick and easy way to tell the world that a friend or co-worker is skilled in any area imaginable, say journalism, social media, or even kettlebells. Received endorsements are listed on member profiles in the skills and expertise section.

Metro User Interface: Description and Web Design Examples | UX Design | Scoop.it

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. /Hans

Good article. I also believe measuring and evaluating UX design projects in business terms is a great way to make a portfolio easier to interpret and more powerful to present for clients.
