Hello again! I decided to make a part 2 of 5 Tricks to improve your UI’s
Again, keep in mind I’m no UI god, I make mistakes and that this tutorial might have some problems
and i hope you find this useful
1. Don’t rely on dots in gallery sliders
Dots have poor usability because it’s hard to hit them.
They are completely unusable on mobile devices.
You have many other options.
You can display clickable parts of previous / next images
2. Indicate where the user is
Users should always know where they are at every moment they use your UI.
Highlight navigation buttons. Add breadcrumbs if your UI is complex.
3. Use only one primary button
One of the common mistakes is having too many primary buttons.
Instead, you should have one primary button, while other
buttons/links should be secondary.
4. Icon inconsistency
When you find some free icons on the web that belongs to
different packs, it might turn out that they have different styling.
- Different stroke width
- Filled / Outlined
- Colored / Non-colored
- Minimalistic / Complex
It’d be better, of course, to use a pack that has some consistent styling.
But if you download a single icon that doesn’t exist in your pack,
make sure it conforms to the styling you already have.
5. Give users a visual hint that there is more content
It is a pretty common trick to visually hint to users that there is
more content than they see at this moment.
Thanks for reading! This is probably the last 5 tricks for a while, I will probably make a post about UI rules and all that other stuff
