I'm using a list to display information. Each row needs to display two thumbnails, and a string.
I noticed with this implementation that the layout of icons seems to resemble two columns. which may be in conflict with the list organization. I am not a designer by training, but I suspect I could design this better so that the user doesn't get drawn to the vertical arrangement of icons, but instead correctly sees the information arranged in rows.
Is this a legitimate concern? What can I do to de-emphasize the columnar look of the icons? (Maybe changing the text, etc.?)
