Your current approach is heading in the right direction. When your users use this data regularly, they will already know the relationship between the groups. Switching background color is one way of creating contrast between groups. Other ways would be to use line separators and white space. One thing you can have do to make it more obvious is by ...

Joel is not always right... The article conflates two different arguments in support of bloat. It makes the case that: Resource bloat can improve software because (a) it allows developers to ship faster; (b) it allows software to support more features, and (c) bloat is relative, meaning that if computing power grows faster than resource bloat, then in ...

Use grouping horizontal lines and eliminate the verticals one. Horizontal lines helps to lead the eye along the line, while vertical lines become a barrier along the eye path:

It looks fine to me, I believe the terminology "we host a version for you" isn't great, perhaps:

You're right in not making decisions based upon your own assumption. What you could do is usability testing with actual people. The best test would be conducted with 5-7 (or more) testpersons from the actual targeted audience in an environment they will be using the app or at least in an environment where they are comfortable. If you don't have time to ...

It really depends so much on you – what you want your business cards look like / feel like – it's your business card and ideally it should speak for you, represent you, your ideas, your style. Just two thoughts on those two 'recommendations' you quoted: You're working digital? Feel free to put a QR code on your card! Other people find QR codes on business ...

First off, take a breather my friend! I have recommendations for you. Firstly, identify the market. Who are they selling to? The demographic, the age, novice users or not, gender, etc. Figure out who they are. From that, build your personas (ex: "John doe is a middle aged man who rarely has time to check his desktop computer, and that's why he's always on ...

Your UI designer will make a colour scheme, which usually defines the colour of a clickable item. It might be contextual, and it would probably need a hover state colour as well. But as Tohster has said, relying on colour alone is an accessibility problem. There needs to be an additional cue, and you have to leave it up to your UI designer to make it for ...

Its a nice question! I agree there is confusion among many people and drawing a line between all the branches is difficult. Reason being all the branches mentioned overlaps at one point or other. The answer actually lies in the names but due to their overlapping nature people do get confused. Even the companies while writing job descriptions. Understand, ...

1) Decide where the instructions come. If the first 5 fields are simple and don't need any help I would omit instructions on top. My inspiration was to be as contextual as I can. 1 2 3 4 5 Instructions 6 7 2) Visually, I like instructions identified on the right corner with either a prominent font, OR a color OR maybe a background. (Use only one or two ...

Bloat by size and efficiency is very different to a bloated feature set Feature Set In the argument around optimal set of software features, add adding "everything" in the Kano model provides a strong way to manage the coverage of features for a population. Enables one to strike a balance between "all the features for everyone" and "enough features to ...

App design is new as a profession so I have borrowed wisdom from a much older profession for getting design perspective: method acting. User stories, psychographics, and personas are very common approaches to the initial/ideation phase of app design. I've found that they are helpful descriptive approaches, but I've found it more powerful to spend time ...

I think the following activities can help to expand the perception of every UX professional: Usability testing (as much as you can) Constant research (new studies, trends, recognized blogs, etc) Participating in communities like this! Knowing your app use cases.

Use BrowserStack and test them all. It's the right thing to do. It's a VM environment that you can get for less than the cost of one phone.

You are the one who is running in your business circle. Think about all the times you've accepted a business card. What did you do with it? What did you like about it? Match those expectations. In the US we use business cards almost like personalized stationery sometimes. If someone hands you a card and says "call me on Tues" you write call Bob on Tues. on ...

With the surge in mobile/tablet access and the rapid advancements and usage of voice services I would say yes of course. It conveys a smoother user experience and you are always better designing with a forward thinking mind frame

I would say definitely sacrifice the images on mobile. Don't think of it as a sacrifice though, just an efficiency :-) You'll never cater for the full breadth of mobile devices with a large menu and images - keep it simple and get the users where they want to go. By the looks of things the links have very concise titles so the images are just for aesthetic ...

Some good answers above but some could be problematic. See the following: Things to avoid and best practice: Firstly, in your examples the first option is better - blue is well known as an actionable link (just look around this stackexchange page!) so having the page you're on as blue wouldn't be ideal. However, putting the current page link in Bold (or ...
