Illustrations for Improved UI and UX Functionality


Illustration for Designers

Designers use illustrations to make it easier for the user to understand their task or what they need to do. Overall, adding illustrations to the user interface will enhance the user experience. Illustrations can clarify a complex idea, deliver important information, or captivate the user’s attention. As well as any other part of an interface, illustration is a functional element rather than decoration

A spot illustration is an object that stands on its own, without a background scene.

Where Illustrations are Needed

Here are some UX parts where illustrations are needed to help the user:

Empty State

Empty state is a moment in a user’s experience when interacting with a product where there is “nothing” to display. The illustrations in the empty state help enhance the user experience and as additional information so that users will know what they should do in the empty state.

The onboarding screens are the first things that the users see when they launch your application. It is usually used to demonstrate some facts about the application such as how to use it, the application features, and how the application can help the users. Too many steps in the onboarding are likely to be skipped, especially if they were designed poorly. So, illustration can help users to understand the message or information faster. Make it short and sweet and display only the main features of your applications.

Interactivity is focused on the moment when a user interacts with a product. For designers, the moment of interaction is just a part of the journey that a user goes through when they interact with a product. Illustration plays a significant role in the experience and seamlessness of the user’s interaction with the product.

A popup is a window that automatically appears (“pops up”) on a website while the user is browsing. Popups are used for many reasons, including sharing discounts and notifications, showing errors, collecting visitor information. Illustration can help users to understand the popup’s message faster.

A banner displays an important, succinct message, and provides actions for users to address (or dismiss the banner). It requires a user action to be dismissed. The banner message communicates a change or error within an app. Banners should be considered as part of an overall in-app messaging strategy supported by suitable illustration.
