Hans's curator insight, July 23, 2013 5:28 AM

Designers have tried to mimic the real world in order to create intuitive digital experiences that are easy to understand. But lately I read several articles mentioning how the digital medium is struggling to find it's own authentic design language, just like a teenage rebel trying to find a comfortable identity. From a usability point of view I see advantages with a purely digital design language, like the flat web design trend, because it allows us to focus on the content, it's readable and it's easy to load and view across devices. However, I also see disadvantages from a usability point of view since we have a legacy of mental models from interacting with an organic environment where textures, materials and shapes have certain abilities that are constant, stones are stones and act like stones, trees are trees and act like trees and so on. In contrast, nothing is constant in the digital world, all we can do is to define design patterns, like swiping down will update the content and a semi transparent box is clickable, so the question is how well we can define it.

Terry Patterson's comment, July 23, 2013 10:20 AM
Excellent insight, Hannes. Following what you mention, I have to wonder if deciding on design patterns for consistent experiences is the best way to focus our efforts as experience designers, or if it is better to adapt our data displays to however the user experiences the world and goes about obtaining data for everything they do. In this conundrum, do we over analyze and make things more complex for the user, or do we step outside of the interface paradigms and observe the user decide how they go about interacting with digital data? Personally, I'm enamored with the glass user interfaces (not Google glass) but the interface concepts on glass surfaces (from Corning a couple of years back: http://www.youtube.com/user/CorningIncorporated
The thing that strikes me here is that the medium matters and the interface matters, there are still design patterns that make these interfaces work, but the content can also be "unleashed" if you will from the interface and re-purposed, transferred easily and called at will. I don't have answers, but I believe like you that we can all shape the future of design patterns for the digital layer that we now have in our lives. Viva the device agnostic era!
Happy Designing!
Hans's comment, July 24, 2013 5:47 AM
First of all, Corning's interface made by glass is really awesome :) I definitely think design will be more organic and ubiquitous in the future. You made some good points. Maybe consistency through time is not the best way to design usable experiences since the only constant in the world is change, maybe the best way is to always, always keep up to date with how users interact with the world around interfaces and incorporate it into design work. And I totally agree with your device agnostic approach where content is free and not locked to any specific interface.
