Centering the ad would break the grid layout The YouTube interface is dense with hierarchical information (main video, info panel, comment panel, suggestions panel, multiple nav bars, etc.) To organize this complex information, YouTube uses a grid layout pattern to provide clear lines and rectangles of organization. Grid layout are proven to help ...

Buttons tend to convey actions, while it looks to me more like these are navigation links. Showing them just as regular links (following whatever style in your app) would be probably be much less imposing both visually and as an action to take. You can also take this a step further, and provide some more useful information instead of simply displaying ...

This seems to be more of a graphic design question than UX question. But there's something called "vertical rhythm" that might help in laying out the flow of elements on a page. Here's some references to get started if you're dealing with webpages: http://www.markboulton.co.uk/journal/incremental-leading ...

The table is distracting because of: High contrast between the buttons and the tables. Grid layout of the buttons creates an unfortunate grid illusion The palette is visually distracting: you have banded rows already, and then are superimposing a saturated darker blue. That's a lot to deal with when the eye already has trouble navigating a complex table ...

1. This is a well-trodden problem Digital designers have been grappliing with this problem since scheduling, project management, and manufacturing planning apps were written in the 80's. 2. Graphical representation is non-trivial When you have multiple, arbitrary dependencies, it becomes very difficult to show dependencies graphically. A simple ...

Depends on the relation between the title and the columns, I'd say. If your title also covers the second column, then the visual hierarchy should reflect that, i.e., you should follow (2). If the title is not related to the second column, approach (1) is right. As an example, if the title says "Search Results for XYZ", and the second column contains ...

Are all 4 buttons equally important? It might make sense to have the main action as a full button and tuck the rest into a button dropdown. It'll make it easier for users to tell which is the main action and still have the rest be accessible is a touch friendly fashion. The second thing you can look at is button color. The blue is very strong against the ...

Here are a couple of websites. New York Times and NDTV respectively. They provide a clean header area for title. It gives central attention to the primary content on the page. ...

Let's start with some principles: It's ok for the help page to look different. In many cases, it may actually be desirable for help to look different because it (a) provides contextual assurance to users that you are acknowledging their need for help; (b) user flow in help is totally different from user flow for the rest of the site (e.g. in an XBox ...

what data does the user actually need to see? If only we could get a straight answer to that. Instead of "it depends". I keep on running into this problem, and every time I Google I end up back here at Jason's excellent question. And there are many excellent answers, but I smell a meta-topic that we all seem to skirt around yet I think is worth ...
