Visual Design Exercice 👀

After learning the basics of UX/UI and some methodology to generate a more creative and organised work it was time to work on the way we see design.

So I selected 4 design that caught my attention and I explain what I like and disliked in each one.

1st Design

😍 What I liked :

  1. The utilisation of a flat design make it very intersting. I clearly love flat design, there are simple, efficient and very well designed most of the time.
  2. The overall interface is very light and easy to understand, no need to search for hours how to play with this tool.
  3. The main information are highlighted brilliantly and give a direct and pertinent visual on the information that the user requested.
  4. The utilisation of flashy colors and shadows/contrast is quiet smart to play with the perspectives and the dimensions.
  5. The toolbar is beautifuly designed by the architecture but also visually.

😕 What I disliked :

  1. What could be missing is an indicator on the scales in each figure, to make it more readable have to have quicker conclusion over the datas.

2nd Design

As a movie lover I found this design quiet brilliant, if we know about the scenario of the movie it’s even more striking. (Actually you need to see it)

😍 What I liked :

  1. The usage of various typography, make it very easy to clearly identify each information and process it very quickly and save it.
  2. The reference to the double gun pointing to the past and to the futur…It’s clearly genius. It puts in perspective the duallity of the present and the futur in the movie. Very representative.
  3. Again the design is very interesting, the Revolver is an intemporel Gun then it’s a perfect metaphore.
  4. Once again it’s a flat design so big +

😕 What I disliked :

  1. The background is a bit fade and the color of the second typography make it difficult to distinguish.

3rd Design

😍 What I liked :

  1. The sobriety and the simplicity of the overall UI.
  2. The color used are nice, and the progression over the time elapsed is interesting and add a visual information to the time passing.
  3. The fluid architecture seems to be very functionnal and easy to use.
  4. The return and menu button are well placed and are coming out with the flashy background

😕 What I disliked :

  1. To much white for the background, even if there is shadow to differenciate the blocks it’s a bit confusing.

4th Design

😍 What I liked :

  1. There is the Golden Gate in background..everybody love the GoldenGate so it’s a big +
  2. The Design is pure and fluid and give a sensation of easyness

😕 What I disliked :

  1. Too much action on the details, it’s moving too fast and there is too much different animations.
  2. Difficult to understand quickly what is the main topic of this app, so the role of the design to make it self-explained is not enought worked
  3. The architecture seems to be messy, there is a moment where nothing is on the screen.
  4. Maybe a bit too light, the usage of more present blocks
