Complex UI Design: Practical Techniques
Digital interfaces are constantly evolving and advancing—it’s more important than ever to create user-friendly and easy-to-navigate experiences.
In this webinar, we'll explore the vital role of design in complex user interfaces and how it can significantly enhance the user experience.
Vitaly Friedman, senior UX consultant of the European Parliament and creative lead of Smashing Magazine, will talk about the intricacies of solving complex design problems. Whether you're working on a multi-level navigation or creating enterprise-grade tables, this webinar will provide you with the necessary tools to excel in your work.
During this session, you'll learn:
- How to design complex mega-dropdowns with 4+ levels of navigation, layout, interaction design, sideways navigation, breadcrumbs, infinite scroll, carousels, and top task analysis. How to create enterprise-grade tables with complex use cases such as inline editing, filtering, tagging, sorting, and search.
- How to design complex multi-page forms, including one-column vs. multi-column layout, error recovery, inline validation, routing, conditional reveal, disabled buttons, and progress bars.
- Language Selector UX, including auto-redirects, language and country presets, support for overrides, and non-modal dialogs.
- Authentication UX, including 2-factor-authentication, magic links, password recovery UX, and CAPTCHAs.
You'll leave this Master Class with a toolbox of practical techniques you can apply to your work immediately. Join us to learn how to design complex UIs that are both powerful and user-friendly.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why aren’t the Master Class webinars free of cost for members?
While the Master Class webinars aren’t free, they are open to both members and non-members of Interaction Design Foundation. While non-members pay $50 per webinar, members pay only $5. We charge this nominal fee to cover a few costs associated with producing the webinars, including:
The cost of using Zoom as our webinar partner. Zoom is one of the most reliable webinar hosting platforms, but it’s also one of the most expensive. We chose quality over affordability to bring you a better viewing experience, and the nominal fee we charge helps us cover these costs, without making the webinars expensive.
Along with the cost of Zoom, we also cover webinar costs associated with servers, payment gateways and code maintenance. In fact, 40 cents off every dollar in a transaction goes towards just the payment gateway alone!
Charging this small fee goes a long way in helping us cover these costs and enables us to continue to bring you high-quality content with the best experts.

I’m a member, but I cannot see all the Master Classes I purchased on my profile. How can I find the ones that are missing?
After each Master Class broadcast, our video editors painstakingly edit, improve and enhance the quality of these recordings to give you a better experience—but this process takes time, and that’s why there’s sometimes a delay in making them available within your profile.
Until recent Master Class recordings appear in your profile, you can always playback any of the Master Classes you’ve purchased using the Zoom recording links you received after the broadcast. Can’t find these recording links? Then please email email@example.com for assistance.
