5 Psychology Studies for Smarter Web Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Research into the human mind is a very important area to stay informed on.


Over on Sparring Mind, I discuss the relation between social psychology and content marketing for startups (That tie-in is very obvious, as psychology is directly related to popular content).


The thing is, many psych studies can actually serve as an amazing resource for web designers as well, because they can give some insight on how the human mind works (and how it interacts with websites).


Here are 5 such studies that will give you some solid research on smart web design.

Designing for Context: The Multiscreen Ecosystem

Designing for Context: The Multiscreen Ecosystem | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

To create applications and systems that are easy to use, it is crucial to understand the user and the context in which the app will be used. Understanding the context helps design systems that anticipate use cases at a relevant time of use. The more unobtrusive and transparent the experience is at the time of use, the better the design. This means the user does not have to think about the device he is using, changes in the environment, or changes in context, and can rely on great functionality and ease of use independent of his situation.


In traditional systems, the context of use did not change much. Whether the use was in the office or at a personal computer at home, the surroundings were similar and there was no need to adapt to different environments. In today's world, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and smart TVs provide different services in different contexts. These services are consumed by a variety of users and require different interaction models, use cases, and planning. For this reason, UX professionals should first design for the context of use in order to provide better experiences and ultimately enhance the intended purpose of the product.

What web designers can learn from music album artwork | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
A lot of design work is shifting to mobile. More and more people are accessing the web on mobile devices, and designers should adapt accordingly.

One element of that, is optimizing images for mobile devices. Sure, there are the technical aspects such as resolution and reducing file size, but what about the actual aspect ratio and content of the images themselves?


Well, sometimes the best inspiration can come from somewhere unrelated to your field. In this case, album covers — specifically ones designed for portable music players, mobile devices, online stores, streaming music services, and more.

It is interesting that two of these deal with confidence. I agree that it is important to avoid throwing out good ideas. We all have to sell. Even the best ideas don't sell themselves.

Awesome UI inspiration and resources from UICloud

Awesome UI inspiration and resources from UICloud | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
When designing a website, mobile app, or other user interface, you might have some very set ideas as to what you want before you even get started (or your client might have established some strict guidelines).


But maybe you’re not really sure if your ideas are the best possible solution. Or maybe you’re struggling to come up with ideas at all.


That’s when you need to turn to some outside inspiration and resources. To do so, you could spend hours going through general web design galleries, looking for ideas. Or you could spend a lot of money buying packs of elements you may or may not end up using.

Or, you could save a bunch of time and just visit UICloud. UICloud collects the best UI elements from around the world and compiles them in a single place, where you can not only get inspiration, but also download files to use in your own designs.

Typography Is The Foundation Of Web Design

Typography Is The Foundation Of Web Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
For years you have been searching for it. You hear the question being asked in your dreams as you go on an Indiana-Jones-type-crusade to find the answer. When the answer comes to you, you know that the confetti will fall from the ceiling and the band will start playing your favorite song. You might even get a kiss from that special someone. So what is this question?

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. Some people loved it, others were not so amused. If Web design was based that much on typography, then what was the point of learning anything else? All you needed to do is understand the elements of typography and you were good to go.

Do Mobile And Desktop Interfaces Belong Together?

Do Mobile And Desktop Interfaces Belong Together? | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
The term “responsive design” has gathered a lot of well-deserved buzz among Web designers. As you probably know, it refers to an easy way to dynamically customize interfaces for different devices and to serve them all from the same website, with no need for a separate mobile domain.


It solves one major problem, and very elegantly: how to adapt visual interfaces for mobile, tablet and desktop browsers. But when unifying a website, you have to solve problems other than how it will appear in different browsers, which could make the task much more difficult than you first realize. A solid design has to account for differences in interaction when using mouse pointers and when using touch gestures, as well as the bandwidth constraints on mobile users.
