What the Heck is Intuitive UI?

  • Vermont Energy Investment Corp 128 Lakeside Avenue, Suite 401 Burlington, VT (map)

Having an intuitive UI is a top goal for every design project, yet few people have a strong understanding of what this concept means. 

In this talk, you will learn exactly what it means for a UI to be intuitive with: 
- A practical definition 
- The attributes required for interactions and task flows to be intuitive 
- The levels of intuitiveness 
- When it’s acceptable for UIs to not be intuitive 
- Making mobile UIs intuitive 
- A simple way to evaluate your own designs for intuitiveness

In the end, you will learn how to help your team design UIs that are more self-explanatory and require less training and documentation. Join & RSVP
