Designing ui architecture

My notes on UI architecture


  • Doodle and sketch out roughly how the UI should look
  • Do broad spectrum research on the best possible way to design the individual components
  • Design one component at the time
  • focus on proportions at first with boxes and dummy colors, slowly add text and then real colors etc
  • Once each component looks good isolated try to click components together
  • If you try to design everything in one go, you will over-perfect and it will feel out of balance


  • Draw steps on your iPad, add image etc
