Learn what makes effective designs successful and how to avoid common discoverability pitfalls. Traditional user interface design is conservative—on-screen elements such as buttons and the like leave little to chance. But design innovation is risky: high upside, high downside. It’s hit or miss. A hit—an intuitive design element or gesture right where you expect it to be—can delight a user. But a miss—a rewarding feature not found—is a wasted opportunity that results in a frustrated user. Aesthetics and real estate constraints heighten the importance of simplicity and clean lines, but how much can you afford to take away? How can you reduce the physical presence of elements without sacrificing their discoverability? Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler. This talk will introduce a range of discoverability strategies to help you create solutions in this new interface world. After this talk, you’ll be able to extend these strategies and best practices to your own applications.
