Minimalist and Intuitive User Interface Design Guidelines for Consumer Electronics Devices
By: Won Kim, Seonghoon Kang
People today come in contact with many consumer electronics (CE) devices in their daily lives. CE devices have become increasingly complex with added functionality; devices from different vendors provide different user interfaces for the same functionality; similar devices from the same vendor provide different user interfaces for common functionality. As a result, usability of CE devices has become a serious challenge for most users. In this paper, we put forth design guidelines for making user interfaces for CE devices easy to understand for most everyday users.
