User Interface Design
User Interface Design
This is where the rubber meets the road. These are the actual page designs. User interface design includes the button designs, field designs, page layout, spacing, calls to action, and all the things that make up the page that the user is interacting with.
Any good user experience starts with a simple intuitive interface design, but we like to take the customer further. When seeing your website, we want your customers to think: "That looks cool." They should be surprised and delighted at every button, subtle animation, and feel of the website.
Getting Started with UI Design
Building brand enhancing user interfaces is fun! We love to start with a thorough review of your brand's visual history. It gives us joy to find cool aesthetic motifs that we can bring forward. We also do a thorough review of your industry and your direct competitors. Most importantly, we ask you to find website examples that visually inspire you. These insights are a proven way to set our team up for success.
Every user interface design project starts with a kickoff meeting. We review all our findings and have you walk us through what you like about your website examples. We also just love to hear your story and any ideas you have for the design.
Multiple concepts are presented in our early rounds to help us nail down your brand aesthetic. After each round we take your feedback and present new and revised concepts. In this fun process, we nail the look of the interface. Once a base set of elements have been approved can interpret how to design the rest of the elements. Of course, you will always review every design and we work until you love your user interface design.
User Interface Design - known as UI for short - is the design of systems that connect users and their devices, such as computers, smartphones and tablets.
User interface design is nothing without good user experience design.
At Go Media, user interface design prioritizes User Experience - or UX for short. UX describes the overall experience one has when using your website or app. It's the step-by-step journeys the users take to accomplish their goals.
Their interaction with your website or mobile application should be a pleasant one. We develop user experience design that makes the user's journey as simple and efficient as possible. These interactions should have the user's end-goals in mind. The very best user experience design accomplishes this without attracting any unneeded attention to itself.
While the user interface is a critical piece to a successful website or app, the work really needs to start with good user experience design. We get to know your target audience, their typical goals and need, and discuss how these match up with your goals for your users. Once priorities are set we wireframe your website where we establish layouts, hierarchy, steps and weight of user focus. If needed, we can build functional prototypes of your website so you can easily test the experience on a functioning prototype of your website.
All of this sets us up for a great user interface design process.

If your website was a movie...
If your website was a movie, the user interface design would be the look of it. It would be the look of your actors: beautiful, weathered, evil, innocent, etc. It would be the look of your sets and lighting. Your user interface would even be your special effects. The look of your 'movie' (website) is a critical part of your brand persona.
