I'm creating a site where I have different products for sale. For many products, the sale get closed after a certain amount of time(like after a week). I want to put some kind of indicator with 'remaining days' which create a sense of urgency in mind of user. Should I use Red color with simple text or should I use some Icon ? Need suggesstions to get it done in a nice way. I'll be really thankfull for your valuable suggesstions.
Perhaps a stopwatch icon with the time counting down under.... It could actually change colors from green to yellow to red as the sale is winding down. If you want a minimalist approach you can simply use text such as : sale ends in 00:31 mins (for example ) Any of the above methods will do, no reason to overcomplicate the interface.
