Throughout Lecture Pod 7: User interface visual design patterns, it delivers some common navigation patterns and clearly identifies how it can be mistaken for how the website or app looks; more so the graphic design part to it.
In particular, for the UI visual design patterns both user experience and user interface come into play especially how interactive they are. Some things to consider are the aesthetics, how effortless it is and how they blend well with each other with the interactivity to initially guide the user through the experience. The first impression and the lasting either makes a web feel helpful, visible or in fact forgettable. Additionally, the main thing that is acknowledged when designing is the user experience, as in the end you want them to have a good one whether it is on an app or even a website. It’s all about getting that motivation right to guide the user interface design for them to accomplish their goals, plus the look, feel and usability are all things to contemplate as it will get noticed no matter what.
Furthermore, the navigation of your site is significant especially things that provide various functional aspects. The items listed below are all necessary for a functional site and are needed to achieve the look and feel of a site as well. Such as; common navigation patterns, (tabs, menus, jumping in hierarchy and contents) drop down menus, drawer menus, search bar with drop down, big footer, home, breadcrumbs, carousel and tags. The above are all necessary for a functional site and are needed to achieve the look and feel of a site as well.
Therefore, from this lecture I acquired the concept of UI visual design patterns and how providing the correct amount of information is a must. From what is being initiated to do as that portrays the knowledge that is partaken by the user. The context plays a major part which qualifies the audience to recognise the project, what it’s about and whether or not the design has approval from the audience.
