What is your process to create an intuitive user interface

Graphical user interface: What makes a good user interface?

But why is an intuitive UI so important? A simple example: A butterfly sign may be pretty - there is a high probability that one or the other target group will like it. But if it is used as a “save” icon, the catchiness of the software suffers from the design, since hardly anyone associates a butterfly with a save process. A floppy disk as an icon, on the other hand, is quickly understood - because even if the storage medium shown is long out of date, it will continue to be used as a symbol for the storage process. Users expect this symbol and almost instinctively look for such well-known icons. Accordingly, one should take into account common sign conventions and not rashly ignore them in the interests of a good user experience and an intuitively understandable graphical user interface.

The example shows: As a web designer or software developer, you always have to master the balancing act between aesthetics and functionality in order to be successful with a product. Optimizing the UI is important to always offer users the best possible experience. This ultimately results - depending on the orientation of the website or software - more conversions, recommendations or user-supported, viral marketing of the product.

In addition to the GUI, the Integration of further user interfaces: If, for example, voice control of the app is possible or a notebook can also be operated via touchscreen, that takes care of that more accessibility and leads to a better user experience. This gives users more options to choose from when using the product. This ensures greater flexibility and also increases the range of an app or a product.
