The Importance of Design For Mobile App User Experience

The Importance of Design For Mobile App User Experience | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it
A discussion of how important creative designs are for the mobile app user experience.

 

Each of the apps featured in the articles has successfully executed well planned features, designed an ease of access by the user to those features and crafted a pleasing user interface. Qualities that the author, Q, defines as core for any successful mobile design are:

Design a unique experience to the device
Keep it simple
Make it fun

You Can Never Create a Predictable, Unified Customer Experience

Think about two little toddlers playing, and imagine giving them some toys. For example let’s say we give them a Thomas the Tank Engine. Even if you instruct them how to play with the trains, kids will design their own routines and come up with their own stories.

 

Marketing departments should approach content in a similar manner.

Typography Is The Foundation Of Web Design | Smashing Magazine

Typography Is The Foundation Of Web Design | Smashing Magazine | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

What is the secret to Web design? A tough question and one that might not have an answer. In 2006, Oliver Reichenstein wrote Web Design is 95% Typography.

 

Paul Scrivens has written a good article on typography and it's importance in design. Several good examples are cited and resources that can be found on the web for further exploration. If you are at all doubtful about the importance that type plays in a design use his simple tool as a way to discover for yourself: "Try going through all the Web designs that you love, strip out the images and ask yourself “how would that website look with just text and spacing?”
