In this weeks lecture it focuses on introducing, the common UI element navigation patterns. Web and User Interface (UI) design is sometimes mistaken with how the website looks, the graphic design. But interface design is not just about the colours and shapes, but also about presenting the user with the right tools to accomplish their goals.
User Interfaces are just more than about buttons, menus and forms for users to fill out. It is the connection between the users and the experience, the first impression and the lasting impression that either makes a website feel familiar and helpful or at best invisible, forgettable or annoying.
