WhatsApp Designer Loves the Nintendo Switch’s Menu For Its Simplicity

Charlie Deets, Producer Designer at WhatsApp, has fell in love with the Nintendo Switch’s Home Menu.

In a lengthy and detailed post, Charlie shared how he couldn’t stop thinking about the Nintendo Switch user interface, which he loves for its “bare bones simplicity”.

I’ve been using the Switch for a few months and I can’t stop thinking about its user interface. Nintendo’s newest console is in the golden era of its UI. The base features you would expect out of a game system are covered, but cruft has not yet been added to the experience. I’ve heard a lot of people say they long for more from the Switch’s UI, but I love the bare bones simplicity.

Charlie goes on to describe the various aspects of the user interface that makes it attractive to a designer like him – speed, visual hierarchy, system information/control assistance, themes, and much more.

He concludes the post with how Nintendo nailed it right with the Nintendo Switch UI , learning its mistakes from the Wii U’s “slow” and “unintuitive” UI. We certainly agree with him on that!
