In a previous post, I was talking about the importance of aesthetics for the user experience. Users think that designs that look good also work well. They forgive minor usability issues more easily if the interface looks nice.
But make no mistake, you can't choose aesthetics over usability. If it does not work, you can have the most beautiful interface, the experience will be bad.
Take this action
Do not prioritize aesthetics over usability. Usefulness and usability are the foundation. A Visual pleasing design is the important cherry on top.
