Creating a product user experience everyone will love

As the world becomes more digital, a good product user interface (UI) and product user experience (UX) is becoming increasingly important. UI and UX design are two distinct disciplines, but they work together to create a product that people enjoy using. Good UI and UX design can be the difference between a product that’s a hit, and one that fails. It’s no wonder then that UI/UX design has become such an important part of industrial design. Let’s dive in and explore what it takes to make a great design.

Good UI and UX design tips 1

What is UI Design?

UI design stands for “user interface design”. This design discipline focuses on how users interact with the product. UI are all the interactive elements that come with a certain product from buttons to LED-indicators and from an integrated touchscreen to an accommodating app. A well-designed product user interface should be visually appealing and easy to use. It should also be intuitive so that users can quickly learn how to use it without needing help or instruction. Good UI design makes it easier for users to do their tasks quickly, reducing frustration and improving the overall user experience.

What is UX Design?

UX stands for “user experience”. This design discipline focuses on creating an enjoyable product user experience when people interact with it. The goal of UX design is to make sure that users find the product or service easy to use, efficient, reliable, secure, and satisfying. A great user experience should be tailored to the specific needs of each individual user so that they have a pleasant time using your product or service.

UI and UX Design Tips

  1. Understand your audience – you need to understand who your target audience is before you start designing so that you can tailor your product specifically for them. For example, making an interface for a medical device operated by nurses in an operating theater is a whole lot different than a machine that will be used on a building site.
  2. Keep it simple – the product should be able to perform its functions as quickly as possible without any unnecessary steps or complex features that will confuse users. Simple designs also tend to look better than overly complicated ones.
  3. Make navigation easy – make sure everything on the product’s screen or app has a logical structure so that users can easily find what they’re looking for without getting lost in a maze of menus and options.
  4. Be realistic – not all devices can be outfitted with a screen or expensive chip to make scrolling through interfaces a smooth experience. People nowadays are “spoiled” by their smartphones which come with the latest chips and can cost well over € 1.000,-. So, if your product can only cost a fraction of that amount outfitting it with a cheap touchscreen and simple chip will make the functionality far less sexy. Perhaps acceptable for your particular product but maybe a silent killer and better to step away from a screen altogether and go with buttons or other options instead.
  5. Test early and often – before launching a product, make sure you test it thoroughly with intended users so you can identify any potential issues before they become serious problems down the line. At ManGo we like to use high- and low fidelity prototypes for this purpose, enabling in the development of a great product user interface and coherently a great product user experience.


Designing a great product isn’t just about aesthetics; it also requires thoughtful consideration of how users will interact with it through both its visual, audio and haptic elements (UI) and its overall experience (UX). By understanding your target audience and focusing on simplicity, ease of navigation, and thorough testing, we at ManGo create products for our clients that people love to use.
