Re-design: Reading Short Stay Revisited

Hiya,

So I posted my first re-design the other day and showed some fellow UX enthusiasts at uni in search of feedback. This post details their suggestions and my amendments I then made to the design.


Feedback

  • Remove the circles as bottom navigation is surplus to requirements
  • Change the blue text to gray-scale so it’s easier to read
  • Use Arial font for the main body text as it works better on web
  • Try changing the circular badges on images to triangles or banners
  • Make the logo smaller – it takes up a lot of space!
  • Un-format the text boxes in the form as that sort of stuff doesn’t work in all the browsers (never knew this! #LessonLearnt)
  • Add home page link to navigation bar
  • Consolidate the apartment pages into one page

A lot of this made perfect sense once someone had pointed it out to me and I also learnt some knew things about browser incompatibilities.


Finished product

Armed with feedback I tweaked the designs and this is how it now stands.
