10 Design Mantras for Mobile App Developers
Work on The GridThe first thing you shouldn’t be looking for is the grid, yet it is the main thing that will guide you through the development process. Confused? To state it clearly, the grid is the invisible mark on the screen that serves as a guide.
Layout DesignYou have to decide on the layout for the app, with the help of the grids. You can take help from the design libraries to decide on the layout of the app.
Stick to Defined ElementsYou need to define the elements of the app, and stick to them throughout the development process. These elements, even if they are used again and again, should appear in the same place – each time.
Use Colors PurposefullyYou should ideally remember two things when using colors –the brand (for which you are developing the app), and the purpose. If the brand is recognized by certain colors, use them in the app. Additionally use colors to set hierarchy – a darker shade can denote more importance.
Keep Designing Trends in MindMobile application development service is an ever-changing world. Trends keep coming and going, and as an app developer you have to keep track of these changes. Using the latest UI trends will help.
Stick to Standard FontsStandardized fonts should be used while developing apps, especially if you are going for native app development.
Make Stylistic Choices to Create HierarchyIf you have to set hierarchy with the content used in the app, you can make several stylistic choices. For example proper use of caps, indent, title case, underline, and contrast.
Hide the ObviousMost of the apps you will come across, except game apps, have a basic structure, which more or less look likea navigation list. Though this is the most obvious fact about app development, it shouldn’t be evident, as apps need to look different from each other.
Stick to Visual Guidelines Set by Different SystemsAndroid, iOS, Windows and every other mobile operating system has its own design guidelines. When you know the native application platform, stick to the prescribed guidelines.
