I have embarked on a quest to become a better designer and learn a few new skills over the next 100 days. Through the Daily UI challenge I hope to refine my Adobe Creative Suite skills, discover new things about interface and UX design, and hopefully hone my writing craft as well.
Daily UI challenge 1 tasked me to create a sign up form. I decided to create a practice room reservation form for a fictional organization called “The Sesh House”. A “Sesh” is a term that often refers to a group of folk musicians who are out having a good time frequenting the local watering holes and playing music. Fair warning, I am a bagpiper by heart and by culture so folk music may be a reoccuring theme. See my results below.
- Limited color pallete helped me to focus on the necessary components of the form
- Collected necessary information to contact the user with available revervation times
- Ensured that required format examples were included in the form field labels
- Ensured that labels were adjacent to the form field
- Ensured that visual cues and instructions to correct the error were provided
- Ensured that contrast of text met 4.5:1 contrast ration with surrounding color
If I were to continue developing this prototype these are the changes I might make
- Fill the form fields with white or lighten the gray color
- Add a radio group to ask if the user would like to be contacted via phone or email
- If more information needs to be collected I would add a second page and make edits to account for multi page forms
- Adobe Illustrator (Pixel 2 demension)
