Want the tricks behind Apple’s app Designs?


Recently Apple made their “iOS Human Interface Guidelines ” available to the general public. This playbook serves as a road map to designing efficient user friendly interfaces through color and the use of negative space. While I don’t find myself designing apps on a regular basis, the book is a good read for any designer faced with decisions that regard UI. The guidelines they present can be applied to any design project especially those for the web or any other medium where information first and fast is important. Focus on the content first, the information that’s important, the colors that get across the message next, and the design and animation last. This will keep the viewer engaged and coming back for content because they know where they will get info, they shouldn’t be engaged in a seek-in-find for the content on the screen. I find too often that a lot of designers (myself included) tend to get caught up in the how and not the why so something like this is a nice reminder of how to reel it in. Enjoy.
