Emotional responses in User Interface Design

UI Designers used to concentrate on the logical factors in their user interface systems. Navigational organization, graphical layouts and engineering constraints often used to be the only things to dictate the look and feel of the product. The evolution of mobile devices and their users—particularly the popularity and intimacy inherent in the interaction between them—has also put an importance on emotion during the user experience. User Interface Designers can now create interface systems that give a more complete user experience by understanding how to include animation and unique icons that not only convey function but also triggers emotion.
