Interface design in websites focuses on the user’s experience and interaction. Where as traditional graphic design seeks to make the object or application physically attractive. Goal’s of user interface design is to make the user’s interaction as simple and efficient as possible. Where good graphic/industrial design is bold and eye catching, good user interface design is to facilitate finishing the task at hand over drawing unnecessary attention to itself. Graphic design may be utilized to apply a theme or style to the interface without compromising its usability. The design process of an interface must balance the meaning of its visual elements that conform the mental model of operation, and the functionality from a technical engineering perspective, in order to create a system that is both usable and easy to adapt to the changing user needs.
The following inspiration is focused on Logins/Signups in Web Design. I was doing research on login forms and thought the community could put this to good use and seek tips / design from these examples. My absolute favorites are Big Cartel, Vimeo, Gist & Status for it’s sleek design and beautiful interface.
