Join Billy Hollis for an in-depth discussion in this video How to declutter crowded screens, part of UX Design for Developers.
- [Instructor] There are lots of ways…to fight crowded screens and organize them better,…and we've already covered some of them.…We've seen how grouping can leverage the visual system.…We can vary size for important items, as we saw earlier.…When we have lots of options,…we can provide favorites and recently used lists and such…to keep the users from needing to use…huge lists so often and bring that complexity…onto the screen.…Let's take a quick look at an application screen…that packs a lot in but still stays relatively open.…
Then we'll look at another design principle…that helps with decluttering called progressive disclosure.…Here's a screen from an app my team worked on.…It's the home screen for an application…that manages cattle.…A typical developer design would probably draw boxes…around most of these areas,…but notice how openness works just as well functionally,…yet it feels more calming.…When people see this screen, they react better to it…than a screen that had a lot of boxes.…It also has the search bar at the top of the menu…
