Module 2 - Feedback from exercise 2

  1. 1. Week 9 App Design Exercise Feedback Module 2
  2. 2. General Feedback Contrast! • Ensure that text colour has enough contrast from background colour • Legibility should be the most important priority! • Not sure if elements have enough contrast? Try the Contrast Checker - http://snook.ca/technical/colour_contr ast/colour.html • A good guideline is that colour contrast is AA Compliant (remember the OADA class…) Good contrast: Not enough contrast:
  3. 3. General Feedback Consistency • Maintain a consistent design from screen to screen or page to page for links, buttons and the overall look and feel • Consistency helps users feel confident that they’re going where they want to go, and know where they are Consistent use of colour, icons across design:
  4. 4. General Feedback “Safe” logo space • Give the logo enough space so it doesn’t feel crowded • Allow it to be the prominent element that it needs to be • The challenge with this assignment was that the client’s primary logo (the circle) is difficult to make smaller, this is an example of a common challenge as you work with different logos on the job… Space around logo: Logo is a bit too tight to the other elements:
  5. 5. General Feedback Use caution when putting text over an image • Be aware that legibility of text may decrease • Legibility is a critical design consideration - users must be able to read text easily, quickly and accurately to have a good experience Text can get difficult to read: Good solution is to add a solid colour:
  6. 6. General Feedback and… remember to meet the requirements of the assignment • Above all, do what the client (or in this case, the assignment) requires • Or, have a good rational as to why you didn’t do what the client requested…
