Nothing to see here. Another graphic design student thinks Craiglist is ugly. Here’s some feedback: It’s been working great since before you were born. How about you first learn why?
Craigslist is fine the way it is! It’s a list of links. Each list is categorized for easy, fast scanning.
You know what’s fast and responsive, especially on mobile?? PLAN HTML. Not whatever the Material-inspired-card-look-of-the-month is. All the white space and drop-shadows that were added means loading an extra UI library, and more importantly: extra scrolling, which just wastes battery.
Who are these “All Users” that you’re trying to design for? We should hear from them. Or maybe you should try using Craiglist to search or buy used equipment of _any_ kind.
Maybe throw components of the thing you’re changing up on UsabilityHub and make an attempt to measure your changes. (Learn how to do a User Survey: https://medium.com/@allisoncrady/designing-iterating-analyzing-user-surveys-for-product-impact-5771fc1cdd7a)
I buy cars from Craigslist and don’t need to be told what “Key Details” are. It’s completely obvious. They exist as scannable tags immediately to the right of the vehicle picture. If anything, you made it harder by separating the labels from their content. Ever read an eye-scanning study? Try Luke Wroblewski’s “Filling in the Blanks” for starters.
Wanna post a haiku? I don’t even see that option on your design.
Finally, the thing that is most offensive, is that you removed the heading of the community where I’m shopping.
Then you hid the communities under a dropdown. Why???
Craiglist: ONE CLICK on the named community. Link followed.
Aaron Ooi: 1) Touch the drop down even see which communities. 2) Fumble with a non-standard implementation of a complex UI component and maybe get to select the one I want. Did it scroll? Do the arrows work? When I type the first two letters does it jump down to that listing? When I hit spacebar, does it select? How about enter? 3) Finally, option selected. Now what happens? 4) Hopefully, it changes to URL to the place I want.
