History of UI/UX Design

User Experience has its roots in human factors and the field of Ergonomics. Since 1940s, this field has focused primarily on the interaction between a human user, their environment and machines to how designs are created with the users in view. As more computers at workplace multiplied, User Experience started to become a good observation for designers.

Back in the ages, primitive tools were used by humans for communication. They did these by drawing representations of animals, nature and objects on stone surface known as Hieroglyphs. Overtime, this act developed into art, writing, storytelling and documentation.

As these tools became more sophisticated, revolution of the industrial age improved productivity.

Inventions such as the typewriter improved writing compared to the use of pen. However, its limitation was it was necessary to learn how to type before they can be used.

Softwares were developed and needed user interface guide or reference that will enable users to have easy access to different components of a system.

Replications of objects in real life were created to assist users to easily adapt and interact with the UI elements, these were called Skeuomorphism. An example is a landline or presented with an icon for calling and receiving calls.
