We looked at the importance of UX design, and now we will cover UI design and why it is essential for engaging with your customers. While UX design refers to the quality of experience a user has interacting with your website, UI represents the features of your site that allow a user to interact with it. It includes the basic design elements that are required for a person to navigate your site and make decisions. For example, let’s say you are downloading a white paper from a website.
We have covered the difference between UI and UX, so now let’s take a look at why good design is so important. The user experience (UX) refers to the quality of experience a user has interacting with your website or application. All aspects of this interaction contribute to the UX. It is the good or bad feeling a person gets after using your company’s site or service.
UX and UI: these two terms are often used interchangeably, but they mean very different things. UX design is short for "user experience design", while UI stands for "user interface design".
At the most fundamental level, the user interface (UI) is the series of screens, pages, and visual elements—things like buttons and icons—that allow a person to interact with a website, product or service.
To say we think about Drupal a lot is an understatement. It is pretty much non-stop Drupal here at Provisio, but what exactly is Drupal? And is it free? Put simply, Drupal is an open source content management system (CMS), meaning it is free to use and does not require license or subscription fees. It's mostly built in the PHP programing language, and it is designed to create websites for use on a variety of web servers.
In our last post, we covered the basic questions you should ask when getting ready to invest in a new website. Now that you have a general picture of your ideal website in your head, it’s important to really explore the details to avoid wasting time, money, and patience during the process. Let’s explore what questions you should ask next.
Our favorite open source content management platform is getting better - Drupal version 9 is coming June 3, 2020.
Drupal 9 is unique. Unlike previous new major versions, it is not a reinvention of Drupal. What does that actually mean? Think of your website like a train. Previously, moving to new major versions of Drupal meant moving the train to a different track entirely. Beginning with Drupal 9, new versions will just be stations on the same track.
When planning the design of your company website, the Content Management System is the foundation. In today’s ever-evolving technology environment, Drupal stands out as one of the best choices available. At Provisio, we are Drupal experts.
