7 Common UX Design Myths You Should Be Aware Of

7 Common UX Design Myths You Should Be Aware Of

Myth 1

a. Simple = minimal

  • Simplicity can actually introduce more complexity. While it's important, it's key to not oversimplify for the sake of minimalism.
  • For example: Icons without text labels are difficult to understand.

Myth 2

b. People are rational

  • Research findings confirm that our decisions are driven more by our emotions than logical and conscious thinking.

Myth 3

c. UX is only about usability

  • Usability allows people to easily accomplish their goals. However, UX is more than it; it's about giving people a delightful and meaningful experience.

Myth 4

d. UX over UI

  • While usability is important, emotions plays a critical role in the users' experience and good visual design speaks to people's emotions.

Myth 5

e. People always use your product the way you intend

  • Oftentimes, users don't care how a product should work. Once they find a way to use it, they'll stick to it if it's a positive experience.

Myth 6

f. Usability testing is expensive

  • Testing can actually be fast and cheap. Low-tech paper prototype tests and just 5 participants can bring valuable results.

Myth 7

g. Designs have to unique and original

  • Originality should be considered, however, design conventions are here for a reason. They've been tested for usability to benefit users.
