Business and accounting products up until now used to have Spartan, purposely minimalistic GUI. This approach worked in the early days of text-based text processors and monochrome trading terminals. However, the latest tendencies in operating system development require a better, more usable and more visually appealing approach to user interface design. Is your software team prepared for the challenge?
Putting clear text messages, intuitive layout is only one side of a problem. It is still easy to spoil a good user interface with badly designed, rushed graphics, with alternatives being spending more on graphics or postponing the release. There is a third, less talked about alternative: using readily available stock graphics to empower your financial project.
What’s so great about stock icons? Stock icons are a perfect way to make your product stand out with professional, balanced design and strikingly good looks. Stock icons are readily available, meaning that you see exactly what you get. Stock images are sold as matching sets, ensuring the integrity of color and style in your product. At last, stock icons are a much less expensive alternative to developing icons even in-house, let alone outsourcing them to a third party.
Working specifically on designing a good product for business-oriented audience, you need stock icons designed with that in mind. While there are many common sets of stock images on the market, there are only a few made for business developers.
