Design / User Experience

Don’t make users think

It should be obvious and self-explanatory.

Establish a Clear Visual Hierarchy

(It’s the order in which the human eye perceives what it sees.)
Manage to focus users’ attention, web-users can instantly recognize edges, patterns and motions.

Strive for simplicity

Every additional choice increases the time required to take a decision.

Usage of the white space

White space makes a website look ‘clean’. While clean design is crucial to communicating a clear message, it doesn’t just mean less content.

Strive for feature exposure

Letting the user see clearly what functions are available.

Make use of effective writing

Directly to the point. No cute words, no exaggerated statements.

Communicate effectively with a “visible language

Organize, Economize(simplicity, clarity, distinctiveness, and emphasis), Communicate

 

Call to Action (CTA)

Does your CTA button catch your eyes?

Use Color Theory and Contrast Psychology

Let Directional Cues Point to Your Call-to-Action

Establish a Clear Visual Hierarchy to CTA

Don’t squander users’ patience
