We had the privilege of sitting down with mr Amine Lamine to gain insights from his experience. As a seasoned UI/UX designer and a creative explorer, his portfolio boasts a diverse range of successful projects, showcasing his expertise in various domains.

Today, we are honored to share highlights from our interview with Amine Lamine. With a career spanning nearly 12 years, he generously shares his wealth of experience.

In this interview, we delve into the principles, challenges, and future trends that shape the world of UI/UX. Amine Lamine, an esteemed ISAMM Alumni, provides us with a unique perspective as an industry expert.

User Research and Feedback Interpretation in Design

  • In your opinion, what role does user research play in the design process, and how do you gather and interpret user feedback?

“It all depends on numerous factors – the project at hand, the specific enterprise, the client’s level of expertise, and, of course, the budget. Undoubtedly, UX research is of paramount importance, with its impact manifesting modestly but significantly over a short duration, aligning with our progress and objectives.

Various methods come into play, depending on our objectives. We dive into both quantitative and qualitative studies, incorporating guerrilla methods, where we go into the terrain and actively seek people’s feedback by having them interact with our applications. Another approach involves data collection, not obligatory if objectives have been sufficiently addressed and we have analyzed everything thoroughly.

Post-analysis, we consolidate findings into comprehensive texts or surveys – a largely manual process given the rarity of automation in summarizing and analyzing the diverse experiences and feedback received.

Addressing cognitive bias is pivotal, particularly during user tests, where we not only observe interactions but also their reactions through facial expressions, eye movements, and hand gestures. This helps assess how users navigate our design and whether they encounter stress or ease.

For the data aspect, we utilize tools like Google Analytics and other applications, implementing tags for analysis. Heatmaps also contribute by visually representing user interaction. Despite the plethora of methods available, the linchpin remains our context, objectives, and, of course, the budget.”

Technologies’ Impact on the Future of UI/UX Design

  • Which emerging design trends or technologies do you find most intriguing, and how do you envision them shaping the future of UI/UX design?

“In the field of UI/UX design, the impact of emerging technologies like AI is undeniable. However, it’s essential to recognize AI as a supportive tool rather than a replacement for human creativity. The idea that AI might entirely replace designers is, in my view, a misconception. Human creativity brings a unique perspective and depth to the design process that cannot be replicated by machines.

I believe AI should be embraced as a facilitator, streamlining certain tasks and allowing designers to concentrate on the more intricate and creative aspects of their work. It serves as a catalyst, providing foundational elements that designers can refine and shape into something truly original.

I recently conducted an experiment comparing logos created by AI with those crafted by me. While the AI-generated logos had their distinctiveness, they lacked the nuanced touch that human creativity brings. This reinforces the notion that AI should not be a passive consumer but a collaborative tool that enhances our creative process.

On the topic of design tools, FIGMA has gained significant traction, even in France, where many designers are making the transition.

However, the complexity of its usage can differ from one country to another. It’s intriguing to observe the global shift towards certain tools and how designers adapt to them, shaping the design landscape in unique ways.”

Beyond Aesthetics: Navigating the Complexities of UX/UI Design

  • In your view, what are the main challenges UI/UX designers face today, and how do you overcome them?

The role of a UI/UX designer goes beyond the surface. “You must really know the job that you are doing as a designer.” Contrary to the misconception that UX/UI designers are solely responsible for the visual appeal of interfaces, the reality is far more intricate. The position of a Product Designer requires a deep understanding of the intricate balance between creativity, strategic thinking, and project management, all with a keen eye on the business objectives.

Being a designer is both challenging and promising. While the learning curve is relatively accessible, the real key lies in practical application. The field is dynamic, and as a designer, it’s crucial to navigate the intricate balance between data, design, strategy, and project management. Knowing where you stand within these realms is vital. Furthermore, the ability to seamlessly align creativity with business objectives is a skill that distinguishes a successful designer.”

Bridging Creativity and Feasibility in UI/UX Design

  • How do you strike a balance between creativity and technical feasibility in your designs?

“We need to establish a solid foundation by understanding our direction and constraints. Knowing our context and the purpose behind our work allows for the creation of a comprehensive design.

It’s about comprehending the context deeply and thinking ‘inside the box’—where the limits of the box represent our constraints, strengths, and weaknesses. Understanding our objectives within this framework helps strike a balance between creativity and feasibility.”
