As UI designers, it’s important to know how the eye processes colors, shapes and patterns to create UI solutions that result in a user-friendly experience. While there are many facets to creating a positive user experience, three mistakes that you want to avoid are:
– Using fonts that are too decorative, or too small and compromising readability
– Using red text on blue backgrounds, or blue text on red backgrounds, as these are two of the hardest colors to look at; and
– Placing unrelated objects in close promiximity. Objects that are close together are automatically processed as related.
