I am currently working on a project which requires a user dashboard. I'm toying between two options. My main concern with a minimalistic layout is that it is a waste of clicks.
I'm a huge fan of bringing the data forward (Saffer) and therefore I want to capture the basic amount of data and display that on my dashboard.
I've not done any UX testing, however my team prefer the more minimal design to start prototyping with. (I'm not sold on it). I feel the front page is slightly wasted if it's just extra click throughs.
What are people's thoughts? Please see my two wireframes:
Thank you in advance!
