Interesting features of UI design in different countries

When you create an interface design for applications / sites operating in different countries, you should take into account the peculiarities of national cultures and traditions of the corresponding target audience. Today we publish a translation of an article from the international company Cuberto, which is engaged in outsourced design and has experience in working with customers from all over the world.

In the article, experts share their impressions and important nuances regarding the UX / UI design of several countries: Japan, the USA, the Russian Federation, China, India and others. You could apply these practices and approaches to your professional activities. The entire animation is taken from the original note (perhaps it will be loaded a little longer than ordinary pictures, but more clearly).

How to make a color palette for a site and not only

In Design Mania, there have already been several publications with similar topics: in a note about color matching services for websites, in addition to inspiration resources, we examined a couple of useful web tools; there was also a post with an overview of palette generators, etc. However, without understanding the logic of how to make a color palette, all of them may turn out to be ineffective.

Top Web Design Articles, Downloads, and Inspiration

We continue the annual tradition and publish the most interesting notes for the “last season”. Earlier in Design Mania, you could already see a similar article for 2017 and a selection of the best posts in 2016. It seems to us that such a digest allows you to quickly view the most relevant materials and, possibly, save something for yourself in bookmarks.

For your convenience, the entries are grouped according to different topics that correspond to the sections of the blog: there are notes about logos, web design in general, icon / font archives, templates, textures, useful sevries and programs, and, of course, inspiring graphics. In total, about 55 links turned out, which completely coincides with last year’s indicators. In 2019, we hope to slightly increase their number + to finish updating the design of the project.
