One of the most important factors that determine the success of any web or mobile applications is a user interface design. Latest technologies today lead to the development of more useful but advanced websites and mobile applications. But still, the success of a website or any other applications is determined by how users perceive it regardless of the evolving technology used. Thus User Experience Design (UED), UI, or UX starts playing a pivotal role in the website design and development process. The awareness about the vital requirements of end users of a product or service at each stage of developing process is essential to develop a website with best user experience.

Those of us who have worked in the website development industry should make decisions based on one thing that what the client expected from us or wanted to see. An in-depth user research prior to start working on a website is inevitable to create an efficient and user-friendly website. The web professionals must know the exact needs, wants and limitations of a user.

User experience design mainly includes a sequence of interactions between a system and a user. This interaction may be physical or virtual, designed to support or meet user needs and wants. The main elements that we should have to take care while designing and developing a well-designed website based on UI are the following:

  • Visual Design
  • Interaction Design
  • Information architecture
  • Usability
  • Accessibility

Visual Design: The look and feel of the front end must be eye-catching and. The aesthetic part of user interface design relies mainly upon graphic design or visual design. For creating an efficient user interface design, you have to organise design elements like images, colours, typography etc. wisely.

Interaction Design: The strong focus on the web designers should be on creating user interactive design that matches the standards of latest UI patterns and user expectations. Interactive designs mainly focus on how effectively the interaction between computers and users take place. This niche is also referred to as Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Information Architecture: The structuring and organising of information are another important things to achieve a website based on user experience design. Nowadays people are very busy and have no time or patience to search needed information. Therefore, it is the responsibility of web professionals to effectively organise and present the information.

Usability: Usability is all about the efficiency, effectiveness and overall satisfaction of the user. Efficiently built web page navigation allows users to seamlessly navigate throughout your web pages. To create an efficient and extensible navigation system, the professionals must understand the possible navigation styles and elements that support both your user’s capabilities and the business needs.

Accessibility: In terms of user experience design, a website should be easy to use, reachable and understandable. The website should be flexible to meet different user preferences, needs and situations. Even the people with disabilities can interact with the web.

The web professionals have an excellent foundation in web design and web development. Always the professionals should be up to date with evolving technologies. In short, UI design is all about effectively representing the needs, wants and circumstances of users, to deliver comfortable and easy to use interface.
