Check out these tips from the world of Architecture to help User Interface (UI) designers take their work to the next level
In today’s technologically driven world, the profession ‘Architect’ has several connotations. It no longer reflects the brick and mortar world alone. Information Architecture can be defined as a process that focuses on organizing, structuring and labeling content in an effective and sustainable way.
As I was discussing these similarities with a close friend, an architect for the past 30 years, I realized that there was a lot in common between the architecture design process and work done by User Experience/Interface (UI) designers. Further conversations with leading professionals in both industries gave me some interesting takeaways to help other UI designers take their work to the next level of excellence.
The Roman architect Vitruvius in his treatise on architecture, De Architectura, asserted that there were three principles of good architecture:
Firmatis (Durability) - It should stand up robustly and remain in good condition.
Utilitas (Utility) - It should be useful and function well for the people using it.
Venustatis (Beauty) - It should delight people and raise their spirits.
UI designers, as well as any thinkers, scientists, engineers, engage in the design process that involves key steps to get the desired results.
“Delivering mindful and ethical designs that will stand the test of time, are the key to a successful UI design.”
