Join Billy Hollis for an in-depth discussion in this video Why crowded screens are bad, part of UX Design for Developers.
- [Instructor] Developers are often unaware…of intuitive design principles.…For example they often think that they have…to cram something into every part of a screen…when they design it, but they are unaware…of the psychological effect that creates.…Let's see that effect in the real world.…Which kitchen counter do you prefer for your cooking?…Most would prefer the open, uncluttered space.…We also experience a calming effect…from open, uncluttered areas such as beaches.…
They feel safe.…We don't think something's going to march up…out of the ocean and eat us.…That intuition and that desire for safety…is buried very deeply in the human brain.…Contrast the psychological effect of the beach…with this scene, where our natural world brains…automatically switch into threat detection mode.…There might be something dangerous behind every plant.…Do you think this effect goes away with crowded screens?…It doesn't.…We learn to deal with them but crowded screens…inherently raise users stress levels…compared to open, uncluttered screens.…
