I have recently been given images to implement as a webpage, the general pattern is that one or more (sub)views exist with a white/Light background, and the other panel is a single dark/black view with mostly summary data.
As the user navigates through the order of the panels exist (e.g. Step one, the panels are White|Black, but on step two it's Black|White). The pattern seems to be that the important stuff is lighter than the summary. But it keeps flipping form one side to another.
Is it more important that I'm consistent with which side of the page is dark vs light, or that I highlight the important information in light?
