  • Chunking

    People remember group information better. In terms of interface design, it comes down to breaking down steps, text, and interface elements into smaller pieces so that users can process, understand, and remember information better.

    Stripe’s main navigation only has five simple links, & products are chunked into 3 simple categories.

    We can also minimise task perception using the concept of chunking, as users unconsciously estimate how much time is required to complete steps or processes.

    If we have too many steps in our user flow, we can simply demarcate it into different sub-steps like 1,2,3 or with a progress bar.
