Preparing the User Interface : Screen layout and composition

Screen layout and composition

The layout of the user interface should be logical and easy to use. Menus and graphics that are used frequently should be easy to find and easy to recognize.
If the user interfaces you design can share one design for most or all markets, there is less maintenance to perform and more consistency. Remember that you might need to make changes to the user interface because of regional equipment differences or cultural requirements.
