UI/UX Design

Chess is a game of strategy that (sadly) many avoid, assuming it’s complex and intimidating, just as many would be overwhelmed by the thought of architecting a mobile app interface. Once you grasp the basics, however (how the pieces move, checking and mating), learning these additional techniques will dramatically improve your chess game as well as help elucidate, inform, and improve your Enterprise interface design decisions.

These simple, easy-to-follow rules let you gain an advantage over your chess opponent. Similarly, following these principles of good UI design will help you create an intuitive interface for your company without fail.

Understand that no matter if we’re talking chess or digital interfaces, each of these tenets has one thing in common. They all involve the utilization of space. Also realize that with this metaphor, “user” loosely translates to “opponent.” Only instead of check-mating their King, we’re simply trying to provide the most elegant, intuitive experience possible.

As a follow-up to our webinar on Enterprise Mobile App User Experience, Steven Brykman continues his series on Enterprise Mobile App UX and outlines 10 strategic components in Chess and relates these back to 10 User Experience and Interface guidelines to follow.
