A Creative Look at the iPad User Interface

User interface (UI) design is an incredibly creative field on touchscreen devices and one that George Kokkinidis decided to take a unique look at.

Part of Design Language, a Brooklyn based design studio, George keeps an 'Infographic Journal' and we recently stumbled across his post entitled 'Remnants of a Disappearing UI'.

George tracks the different approaches some Developers and UI Designers have taken to the touchscreen interface, given that the finger is just about the only input device that is used (certain styli excepted).

Starting with a clean screen for each app George used the app briefly, turned the iPad off, photographed the fingerprints left behind, and enhanced them a little to help the fingerprint traces stand out.

The result is a really interesting and creative look at how we use touchscreens, but in particular our favourite the iPad. We hope you find it interesting.

Be sure to check out George's post, where you can read his explanation and see the image at full resolution.
