The development and employment of graphical user interfaces in order to support work with the computer is one of the key factors for the success of interactive applications on a wide range of platforms. This paper discusses the basic concepts of human-computer interaction as well as the user interface design and development styles and tools. A classification model is presented in order to illustrate the relationship between classical two-dimensional user interfaces and emerging modern interfaces. Multimedia and virtual reality interfaces, as two novel user interface paradigms, are then discussed in detail.
