But it also demonstrates a confusing search anti-pattern, while forcing the user to take unnecessary action. Chances are, you may not have noticed this, or the additional 7 common UI design defects; Mobile UX Advisor Greg Nudelman did. There are 100s of examples and design patterns in our pattern library; Greg’s 3rd book, Android Design Patterns: Interaction Design Solutions for Developers (Wiley 2013), alone features over 70.
At the core of many projects is the $1 Prototype methodology: rapid exploration of design approaches, coupled with rigorous iterative user testing. Typically, 5 or more approaches are designed, tested and rapidly discarded in the span of 2-3 weeks, as described in Greg’s 4th mobile UX book: The $1 Prototype: A Modern Approach to Mobile UX Design and Rapid Innovation for Material Design, iOS8, and RWD. This obsession with the quality of customer experience means our clients receive the UI design that is innovative, delightful, and uniquely shaped for the customer tasks and business goals. Which sets our clients on an entirely new level apart from the competition, creating unprecedented customer loyalty. DesignCaffeine, Inc. – Design that Works ™.
