So I have a list which is a mix of "wishlist" locations that a user wants to visit and "favorite" locations that a user has visited and liked. (physical locations e.g. restaurants, coffee shops, bars) Each list item is the name of the place on one line and the city below like this:
Bathtub Gin & Co. Seattle, WA
what is the most intuitive way to visually distinguish "wishlist" places from "favorite" places (without splitting them into two lists)?
Some things that come to mind but dont jump out at me:
- different icons (star icon + some other icon)
- slightly different color (background/text color, maybe playing on the blue/purple scheme for hyperlinks)
including a visited date if the place is a "favorite", otherwise not including a date like in the listing like so:
Red Medicine Los Angeles, CA Bathtub Gin & Co. Seattle, WA (visited: September 2012)
What do you guys think?
