Less is really more — Simplifying UX

By Reducing Taps and Actions

Need to simplify UX

As smartphones break and create horizons everyday with how far they have delved into everyday culture, both educated and uneducated users have gotten their hands on this fascinating technology.

How should we simplify user’s experience?

John Maeda’s book The Laws of Simplicity explains 10 laws which imply that simplicity can be broken down into; delves into each law’s contribution to different aspects of it. All of these laws can be applied to any UX design project. But, three of them are essential when it comes to simplifying any user’s interaction with an application.

  • Reduce
  • Organize
  • Prioritize

Reduction: Less is More

Remove Elements

The precision required to communicate a message and hit the user’s mind is missing from most products. When it comes to design: words, colors or anything else that might distract the user’s attention- decreases how overwhelmed the user can be when they try to use the app. This makes them confident and they start to connect with your product instantly.
