"How can we settle this?" You can get everyone in a room, give everyone boxing gloves and the last man standing wins! Or... Do two designs and split test them. Have the end user decide which is better. You can debate it all day long (as I'm sure you did today) but in the end, nobody will be right and nobody will be wrong. So, if you have to satisfy ...

When I do something like this, I make those two a table, bold / right-align the left column, and then it looks nice and even. The result ends up being something like this:

Paul's solution is great: left aligning both the first and second column. Alternatively, you could go for smaller labels, and divide the information into separate columns.

There are opinions on this topic, and there are a lot of guidance to it. From a readability perspective based on science (I was told in my bachelor education), you could also use the one line approach. This means that you center your name/value pair along a single line instead of two lines. Reading this content downward the user only has to follow one line ...

When designing any UI, consider that each element that you place on screen should have a clear purpose and function. That said, displaying 2 different search fields will result into confused users expecting those fields to perform different actions. It looks that your main CTA is search, so you your challenge seems very similar to the one Airbnb faces. ...

Two search boxes in the home page will confuse users; they will wonder if there are two types of search. Also, by adding a second search you will make the design more complex. You should have as few elements as possible in your design. If you want to emphasize the search in the home page you can use white space just like Google does.

(consider this more user feedback than UX professional feedback) The and and or filters are too complicated. Use and only. The user is smart enough to know that city and mountain and sea view will have few to no results. This simplifies the design (Look at View and Internet, my paint skills are limited): It works out very well with Internet since you can ...

I suggest a grid so the user have the choice to focus on one phone at the time (vertically) or on the features (horizontally) download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

I think you're on the right track here. You could, however, make a combination of both solutions combining both strengths. Place the new entry button at the top of each list, next to the title. This way the button doesn't need a label (like Actions), the position makes sense and if you'd like you can keep both the title and the button fixed of the top of the ...

I was wondering where and how in the app should I explain what the app does You put that in the description of the app store, not the app itself. If the user has installed the app they know what it does. The Facebook app doesn't have a "what's Facebook" section, or a "what do you use Facebook for" section. and what the output means? Ideally, you ...

The more you can lose design elements that doesn't provide value to the reader, the better. Vertical and horizontal lines, fat headers with disturbing colours or boxes without meaning. If you can work with negative space (a.k.a White Space) for clarity you make your news site easy on the eye and less stressful to brows through where content stand out ...

I agree with DesignerAnalyst. Two search boxes will simply confuse the user and as such could be considered redundant as they result in the same goal. Google themselves have the search in the centre of the page, but once you begin to type, the search moves to the top left.

I'd say go for a sub domain. by doing this it'll clearly differentiate the different part of your website and will refocus users from viewing/getting inspired mode into shopping mode. have seen this practice across some commercial websites.

There's a reason minimalist design has taken over the Internet... it's easier. The fewer available actions available to the user, the less confusion. Duplication of any action is completely unnecessary as long as the available actions are obvious and intuitive. You, out of anyone should know what the user is trying to achieve, it is your goal to present ...

Without knowing what kind of a news site you are developing and without understanding what kind of an audience you want to draw/keep and making assumptions for the same, I would cautiously suggest a combination: - With Example 2, you are able to let the content be the star by taking away any visually distracting elements of the page. - With Example 3, you ...

Your second option is perfect for eyes fitness, but could slow down information processing. In typography they call this River effect and try to eliminate it: A carefully composed text page appears as an orderly series of strips of black separated by horizontal channels of white space. Conversely, in a slovenly setting the tendency is for the page ...

I think the most compelling argument for these types of layouts is that they are used specifically for sites that want to tell a story. They are narrative in nature and progress naturally from top to bottom with scroll in easily digestible chunks with lots of space for large impacting visuals. Some of the examples in this article from Smashingmagazine.com ...

As with "web gradients 2.0", "tickered text", overly animated sites or the paralax effect, it's trend. However, "divided content" also fundaments on that people don't care if they have scroll longer pages, as long as they get to the part they want to read. Less clicking and carefully selected text in each "divided content" means that you're less likely to ...

Another personal opinion: Think of it as a (perhaps animated) multimedia magazine experience Colors, fluid/animated and fullscreen / big elements is just the thing for the moment Fullscreen adds some air/spaciousness to the viewing experience Colors make each page/section stand out more. And more fresh/vibrant as oppose to old and dry "texty" I think ...

I completely agree with @PaulDessert. A/B test the two against a user sample and see which sticks. Personally, I think neither are ideal. The ragged edge is hard to read, while the right-ranged visually associates statuses to secondary content (which I don't think you intend). That said, my eye is drawn to #2 and, if you were to do that, I would either ...
