Beautiful and functional interfaces – UX Planet
In order to tell a pretty thing from a-not-so-pretty, you need to see and feel it, that’s true. But if we are talking about a bridge between functionality and appeal, there are some things that have to be accomplished. Among those are:

Consistency. Like I was intimidated by the soap production UIs, we tend to be hostile to the unfamiliar substance. One of the goals of design and UX design, in particular, is to create intuitive experiences through consistent and familiar visuals. Our appreciation of things we know is a natural mechanism of navigation through life.

Now imagine how unwholesome the experience would be if it was built by a team of specialists with different backgrounds and purposes, and not brought to a common standard. It’s better for the entire product that this standard would be calculated and holistic.

Hierarchy. What every designer has to study and be good at is prioritizing elements according to the significance and purpose. What almost every complicated professional interface can benefit from is the hierarchy. Other than putting burning red colors around elements to pay attention to, there are lots of ways to structure UI parts in a more engaging and beautiful manner.
Engagement. Everything we touch upon invokes an emotional response in us. Through design, we can influence and channel this response, which is a definite advantage, so why ignore it?

[…] A poorly designed product often resembles a cheap product which invokes neglect, and as a result, does not help build a long-term following and endorsement of that product.
