Creating Interactions... Good vs Bad
Some Advice • Keep it simple, clear, and concise • A manageable amount of information is visible on screen • Images are appropriate, and correct quality and clarity • You are consistent with your use of formatting
Keep it Simple (good) • Content accurate and concise • Easy to read • Use additional media to emphasise the content A B C
Too Simple (bad) • To little information can seem dull or not important
Too Complex (bad) • If you put too much text on the page it can be hard to read. • Reading on the screen can be tiresome, so the major points should be immediately available. • Too many images cause confusion, and can be far too cluttered • Information can be broken down into smaller chunks over multiple pages to make it easier to understand. • Make sure the text can still be read on the screen A B C
All information is present (good) Scotland • Part of the United Kindom (UK) • Edinburgh is the Capital City • Is a largely rural country with a beautiful landscape of Mountains and Lochs
Information is missing (bad) Scotland • Enter text here... Add image here...
Breaking up Content • A process with multiple steps is easy to break-down into smaller chunks • Each step should describe a certain course of action • It is important to balance the content • Not too many steps (can be tedious) • Not too few (can be over-complex)
Formatting(good and bad) Spacing Make sure there is space between content Titles Each section of content should have a meaningful label CAPS LOCK YOU SHOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH YOUR CAPITAL LETTERS, do not type on ALL CAPS • Make sure text is readable on it’s background • Make sure text is readable on it’s background • Make sure text is readable on it’s background
Images • Images should be clear and easy to understand • Beware making small images larger • If image has labels, make sure they are still readable, otherwise replace with your own text
Summary • Feel free to experiment – but be consistent • Imagine you are looking at the content without any prior knowledge – is it clear? • Is all information present? • Content is broken up into manageable pieces.
