5 emerging UX trends in 2019

UX trends in 2019

What trends are UX designers going to have to consider?

With technology constantly moving forward the industry has to adapt to new UX design strategies. Here’s what’s hot today.

The user experience is more important than ever.

If a user doesn’t get the right experience when visiting a site or device then they will simply go elsewhere to get the experience they want.

Typically, the user experience has been based on click and gestures on websites and apps, but as web design tools progress, new technologies are becoming more and more commonplace and are changing the parameters of a good user experience. Think about how voice has changed the way that you interact with your devices and how you search the web.

Here, we take a peek at the UX trends that are shaping the now and the future, and outline what you need to know about them.

01. Voice User Interfaces (VUIs)

Voice user interfaces (VUIs) allow the user to interact with a system through voice or speech commands. Virtual assistants, such as Alexa and Siri, are common examples of VUIs today. The way users interact with voice user interfaces is very different to graphical ones, so you may quickly find yourself unsure of how to create great user experiences for VUIs.

The intricate nature of user’s conversing with a VUI means a designer needs to pay close attention to how easily a user might overstep with expectations, because individuals normally associate voice with personal communication.

02. Storytelling for a more memorable experience

From a consumer’s point of view, UX design is no longer a unique selling point, it’s now an expectation. Humans become engrossed in stories and a good story has the power to create empathy with the user. Because more brands seek new and innovative ways to stand out from the rest, we will see a growing trend towards storytelling in UX.

However, learning how to incorporate storytelling into the design process will be one of the biggest challenges for UXers this year, but it also represents a huge area of opportunity for both brands and UXers who want to stand out.

03. UX for wearables

UX trends in 2019Think about how to design for wearables such as watches

During the past year, we’ve been witnessing the rise of a variety of wearables, from smartwatches to portable devices to monitor the quality of your sleep or your heart rate, for example. And their popularity will just continue to grow in 2019. So, it’s up to the UX designer to optimise the experience of these devices.

It’s an appealing space for designers that are intrigued by the idea of working at the intersection of fashion, technology and wellness, which adds that additional layer to the significance of user experience design.

04. AI for personalised experiences

UX trends in 2019AI plus UX = a host of design possibilites

With the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning, companies now have the opportunity to take a more personalised approach towards customers. AI will not replace UX designers but they can work together to give the user what they want. It’s about matching user information that AI collects with the knowledge of the UX designer.

Brands such as Netflix have known to curate content recommendations with their proprietary algorithm. This way, you’ll deliver a great experience based on the preferences, tastes, behaviours and characteristics of your user.

05. UX to drive business

Based on the trends we’ve already spoken about, UX design will continue to be the driver of business success, as more and more companies discover the return of investment when designing great products. The potential for design-driven growth is massive in both product and service-based sectors.

In short, a good user experience is clearly good for business. According to a study by Forester, companies who invest in UX, see a lower cost of customer acquisition, lower support cost, increased customer retention and increased market share.

Design Tips

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

The technical age we live in today is evolving each day with various brilliant technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Business Intelligence, and BlockChain, which are becoming an inevitable part of our daily lives. These smart technologies use complex algorithms to quickly analyse tons of data, and present users with useful information. But, what’s the point of data or information, if the user cannot understand or relate to it? Or worse, what if they are unable to find it useful or benefit from it? This is the very reason to why dashboard designs have recently gained a lot of importance.

In one of our previous blogs, Seven pro tips to nail dashboard design, we discussed the functional, A.K.A, the UX side of the dashboard design. This piece, on the other hand, is about the visual design of a dashboard, as UI of a dashboard is equally important in order to make it usable and fun. However, before we delve into how to make dashboards look their very best, here is a quick recap of essential features of a great dashboard:

  • An effective dashboard shows useful information that a user can act upon, as well as makes the visual representation of what is otherwise complicated data, easy to understand.
  • A good dashboard is able to help its users comprehend, analyze, as well as present key insights.
  • They’re easy to customize, are not convoluted, and most importantly, are extremely intuitive.
  • Although there’s a limit on space, great dashboards have room for the most important data components and widgets without seeming too cluttered.

Here are a couple of visual nitty-gritties of dashboard design:

Consistency is Key

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

When it comes to a dashboard, it’s important to remain consistent in terms of visual design, throughout. An undeviating design on all devices is what we are talking about. Most users own multiple devices that have varying screen sizes, such as smartphones, tablets, and desktops, and hence, it’s extremely important to ensure that the dashboard is consistent in terms of the way it looks and functions on each of these devices, whether it’s in terms of colors, fonts, placement of elements, navigation, or even the style of charts. It’s advisable to follow the golden rule of design by starting with the smallest screen first, as this helps in creating visually appealing spaces for the most important information first and leads towards creating the perfect user interface design that enhances the abilities of a great UX, as well.

Convey the Important Information First

Content hierarchy is the heart and soul of designing a dashboard but is something that is achieved during the UX stage of dashboard design. However, It is only through visual design, that the most vital information can be conveyed to users in an appealing and usable manner. This stage not only helps in freezing the layout but also helps define the design guidelines.

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

  • Card layout is generally the most preferred form, because it allows for concise data classification, along with flexibility for easy customisation.
  • Central alignment is most recommended, as users perceive that part of the information first.
  • 18 Pixel Font is the maximum to be used.
  • Distinctive color should be used for highlighting the information.

Easy Customisation

While designing a dashboard it’s important not to take a “one size fits all” approach. This is because firstly, we have multiple user roles with varying needs and priorities; and secondly, designs should be scalable. It’s really important to focus on empowering users with designs that they can adjust to fit their individual business needs — this could be as simple adding or deleting a column, or as complex as adding a whole new module.

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

Basically, no matter what the complexity the adjustment is, good dashboard design should always allow for easy customization.

  • Try using easy to drag and drop interaction for customizable dashboard
  • Allow for easy modifications like addition/deletion of fields
  • Provide different color themes if possible
  • Give different options for viewing/downloading data

In Terms of Charts, Less is More

As designers, we generally get very excited by the varieties of ideas of presenting data differently, which tends to make us go overboard. But, charts are the primary data visualisation tool for users and they should be simple — fancy, complicated charts should be avoided.

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

  • Bar charts, pie charts, and line charts are easy on the eyes and work well in compact places.
  • Try to avoid 3D charts, and use charts with a flat design instead, as they’re easier to comprehend, and tend to look neater.

Pay Attention to the Iconography

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

Generally ignored, but a very vital component of a dashboard UI is icons. The best dashboard designs include icons that are familiar. For instance, a trash can symbolizes ‘delete’ and everyone can easily recognize its function. Dashboards are probably used multiple times a day by users and are accessed for quick action or information. Hence, obvious signifiers reduce the processing time and help create great UX and UI.

Remember to Use the Right Font

Both, the style of the font and its size are equally important when it comes to UX and UI. While designing a dashboard, it’s advisable to use not more than two font styles for cleaner UI design.

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

Creating a visual hierarchy (in the inverted pyramid style) with all the written content present on the dashboard is very important. You can do this by putting the most important insights in the largest font and probably in a distinctive color, and put the not-so-important information in a smaller font size.

Color Psychology is More Important Than You May Think

Different colors denote different things. Think about a traffic light. The red light requires us to stop, and the green means we can continue driving. Now, imagine having a green light that requires us to stop, and a red light that conveys we can keep on driving. Wouldn’t that be really confusing? This is why, in order to achieve a good dashboard UI, it’s extremely important to be mindful of the colors used in the dashboard design.

 

8 tips for a great dashboard UI

 

Besides using the right colors, it’s important to keep in mind not to go overboard with the colors used. In order to use color correctly for a dashboard, it’s vital to leverage contrast. You could start by using just two colors that match well, such as complementary colors.

Final Thoughts

The aforementioned tips will surely help in creating a better dashboard UI design, but they’re worthless if you don’t know the user. If you know your users’ preferences well, you will be able to determine what kind of style needs to be employed on a dashboard. Furthermore, it would help to precisely tailor the designs according to the specific needs of your audience, which in turn will make them find the dashboard useful. Imagine designing a corporate-looking dashboard for children! It would surely make them wary of the dashboard, wouldn’t it? And imagine a dashboard for businessmen that has the Looney Toons all over it — it’ll obviously lose every ounce of seriousness that it’s supposed to have. That’s why, even in visual design, knowing the user is of utmost importance. For an in-depth understanding of employing research techniques, you could check out our blog on user research.

After all, as Frank Chimero rightly said, “People ignore designs that ignore people”.
