Join David Hogue for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with design patterns, part of Applied Interaction Design.
So here we are on the original Hansel and Petal website, and we've created, with a…little bit of difficulty, a Custom Bouquet, and we've added it to our Cart.…At least we have the indicator up here. Let's go ahead to the Cart page and make…sure that everything is there. Yes, we've got our Rainbow Rose…Collection, and yes, we've got our Custom Bouquet.…Now, you may notice that this cart is just the minimal amount of information.…Well, everything that we need is here, but it's not quite what people expect to be here.…
Remember we have mental models and prior experience things like I would like to see…an image of the product that I purchased here.…I'd also like maybe a little bit more information, such as what are the shipping…fees, or might I pay tax? And, from this Shopping Basket page how do…I go back to shopping? Is it just up to me to navigate, or can I…return to the previous product, or can I edit my custom bouquet?…Things like that, that may be part of people's expectations are not present.…
One of the things that can help us make better design decisions are Design patterns.…
