Background. The increasing complexity of tasks related to users’ interaction with the system requires us to develop novel approaches to user interface design that would improve functionality of the existing interfaces and allow us to create new ones. The present paper focuses on digital interfaces with the following characteristics: cognitive load, room for experimentation, changeability, and advanced analytics that makes it possible to identify and eliminate the system’s weak points. The research considers the main principles of digital interface design that facilitate building a user interface that supports various types of dialogue, and our main goal is to unify various approaches to designing and constructing such systems. Materials and methods. Having examined digital interfaces in terms of their functionality and communication requirements, we propose a novel approach to choosing between different ways of communication based on the characteristics and demands of the target audience. Results. Crucially, we offer new techniques for minimizing the cognitive load of a user interface. We further suggest solutions for the main information tasks related to user interfaces, such as building a visual hierarchy, placing emphasis, and identifying objects. Conclusions. Having identified and gathered the definitions, requirements and principles of interface design, we outline new ways to increase the speed of users’ performance and reduce human error, regardless of the particular tasks and purpose of the system.
