user friendliness and communication

Focus on User Friendliness

What is user friendliness? The passengers found that they can’t swipe IC card and don’t have any change when they get on the bus. The bus makes them feel inconvenient. This owns to it can’t swipe IC card and meet the needs of passengers. It’s a bad user experience production. What’s the connection between user friendliness and UI/UX expert? Experienced designers all know that a qualified design must focus on user friendliness.

Be Good at Communication

It’s said that communication is a bridge between people, a good design must be communicated repeatedly. Thus, an UI/UX expert must be good at communication. Take crowding bus as an example again, passengers are dissatisfied with that the bus can’t swipe IC card, what should bus driver does? Similarly, if the developers or product managers do not understand your design, what should you do? Draw a circle to curse them? Wake up! It will not solve the problem. You should communicate with them and explain the design idea positively, a design which is communicated will tend to be perfect.

Keep a Curiosity

A wise man will always maintain a curiosity, a good UI/UX expert is also supposed to do this. Curiosity not only brings you continuous design inspiration, also makes you adhere to design. It is like the blood flowing in your design. If it doesn’t run some day, your design inspiration will dry up.


Don’t believe any crash courses, it’s non-nutritious. The design is an industry which needs precipitation. You can’t realize the goal of becoming UI/UX expert in a short time, you have to focus on precipitation in this industry for several years. You will find that what you get is not just a design expert's title, but more valuable is the experience and skills.

Instead of experiencing the process of crowding bus, the article aims at making you understand a truth. The little things often hide a lot of truth. For example, the case of crowding bus let you understand a truth. If you want to become an UI/UX expert, there are no shortcuts. Work steadily is the only way to succeed!
