Some tips for designing User Interface

Want to share some important tips for designing user interface:

1.Follow the contrast rule

If you are going to use color in your application, you need to ensure that your screens are still readable. The best way to do this is to follow the contrast rule: Use dark text on light backgrounds and light text on dark backgrounds.

2.Don’t create busy user interfaces

Crowded screens are difficult to understand and, hence, are difficult to use. Experimental results show that the overall density of the screen should not exceed 40 percent, whereas local density within groupings should not exceed 62 percent.

3.Your design should be related to topic

If your users don’t know how to use it,so by seeing your design,they should be able to determine how to use it.

4.Don’t create busy user interfaces

Crowded screens are difficult to understand and, hence, are difficult to use.

5.Group things properly

Items that are logically connected should be grouped together on the screen to communicate they are connected, whereas items that have nothing to do with each other should be separated.

6.Look at other applications to get more ideas

Unless you know another application has been verified to follow the user interface-standards and guidelines of your organization, don’t assume the application is doing things right. Although looking at the work of others to get ideas is always a good idea, until you know how to distinguish between good user interface design and bad user interface design, you must be careful.

7.Learn from your mistakes

How many times have you accidentally deleted some text in one of your files or deleted the file itself? Were you able to recover from these mistakes or were you forced to redo hours, or even days, of work? The reality is that to err is human, so you should design your user interface to recover from mistakes made by you.

Hope you like it !!!
