- [Instructor] I'd like to do a little exercise…in mind reading at this point.…You may be thinking my app has special requirements,…it really does need crowded screens.…Well, in my experience, it probably doesn't.…Only a handful of applications with a special…class of users who can handle high-cognitive load…are really in that category.…But during UX design, you'll sometimes run into users…who themselves insist on crowded screens…and they may even be right in some narrow circumstances.…
Usually not, though.…They probably have never seen an uncluttered alternative…that matches their job.…One of the main reasons users ask for crowded screens…is that if you don't show users everything they might…ever need on that single screen, they assume that you'll…hide it where they can't find it.…They don't trust you to understand their job well enough…to show them what they want.…The solution to that, though, isn't to just give in to them.…The solution is better design.…
Later in the course I'll do an example from a real project…
