The Space Between Screens

It can be easy to think of a user’s experience as a series of screens. Moving from one screen to the next until they achieve the goal you’ve set out for them. However there’s a lot of room for error along the way. Networks fail, user data may be incomplete, and sometimes they just encounter bugs.

These undesired states are perfect opportunities to create memorable moments and delightful interactions. 

By giving a little attention to loading, failure, and empty states, we can shift users away from dull or frustrating situations and into the happy path we’ve set out for them. It just takes a little thought.

Community Thoughts on The Space Between Screens...

  1. 1. How to fix a bad user interface “The reality is that the world in which we live isn’t perfect, and things go wrong. Servers take time to respond. And your customers won’t always use your product the way in which you intended.”
  2. 2. WHY EMPTY STATES DESERVE MORE DESIGN TIME “...every little detail counts in convincing a user to give your product a fair chance.”
  3. 3. 7 Principles of Rich Web Applications “With client-side code driving user interaction, we are now able to mask latency. We can create the perception of speed. We can artificially approach zero latency.”
