Just about everyone has used the internet these days, and many of us rely on it to connect with families, run our businesses, live our life and manage nearly all aspects of daily activities. What makes online systems easier to use, is clear navigation and experience by means of both a UI and UX Design.
User Interface (UI) is the face-value tools, in which a user can interact with a website, web app, database or front-facing system. This is not entirely exclusive to websites; as nearly every digital device has some form of GUI (Generic user interface), including desktop operating systems, mobile devices, smart TVs, car dashboards or whitegoods appliances. It is the means in which information is communicated either to, or from, a computer device.
Ideally, a UI is best suited to its use case. As there are so many different uses for a computer system, it is nearly impossible to design a single user interface which suits every possible use case; An example may be using a Linux terminal to run a remote server, is very different to running a Macbook Air; Both server a purpose, one user interface is entirely focused on resource conservation and functionality, another is very resource-hungry albeit elegant, attractive and easy to navigate.
User Experience (UX) is how a user will experience a website or web app. Generally a UX is heavily dictated by the purpose of a website; an E’commerce store will encourage shopping and making a purchase; an online resume will display skills and experiences, a Learning Management System (LMS) will display large bodies of text and media focused on being clear, and a directory website will display search filters and listings.
Data Fidelity has built and designed multiple user interfaces for web-based systems, suited to their specific use case. Most of the time, a user interface is made to be as simple as possible and easy to interpret and navigate. Contact us to find out how we can assist with designing the best suited user interface for your project.
WCAG Accessibility guidelines are developed by W3C to provide a single standard for all people, including those with impairments, to be able to access, and use the internet. This is governed and regulated by W3C continuously for improvement. W3C Guidelines include:
Data Fidelity has done so in the past, and will continue to do so with future projects, ensure that all projects meet at a minimum WCAG 2.0 requirements. Contact us to learn more about WCAG compliance and accessibility.
