So i'm designing the UI for an app we're making for our school (and subsequently many other schools)
Wanted to keep it on the DL but whatever, my boss says this is fine but personally i think the text boxes look, idk, out of place. What's your opinion on this and how can i make it better?
as for the navigation back and x button he personally wanted it stretched, kinda like linkedin's mobile app. So can't change that, as for the rest yea looking over it it does look stretched and badly lined, i'm gonna need to straighten it out with a ruler.
Any other opinions? color, overall scheme, shapes etc
What the FUCK is wrong with your text, boyo?
And never model anything after LinkedIn's app. It's a UI/UX nightmare graveyard of failed ideas applied liberally with little direction or thought of the user.
From a UX perspective, this kind of screen is what makes users hit the home button and never open your app again. There are way too many things to fill out on one screen. You need to come up with a flow where the user starts by typing their first and last names (not "full name" all in one field - it's not clear whether you want first first or last first) and then submits that and enters additional information on subsequent screens. Aim to have no more than 3 entry fields on each screen. That way, the user has already committed and has a slight sense of accomplishment and engagement from submitting their name on the first screen, and is more likely to fill out subsequent screens. Note, these screens should all load nearly INSTANTLY - submit the data at the end of the form so you aren't waiting for some database handshake to move from screen to screen.
From a design perspective, this is pretty ugly right now. The icons are unnecessary, and the text has been stretched out to different dimensions in the text boxes - not a good look. Just have First Name in the first box, in a lighter grey, and make sure when the user starts typing it switches to a darker grey or black.
You should design click states for the buttons and click states for the text fields (how it looks when it's currently selected.)
wtf change the color, logos fine. look into color association. if its for a school choose a dark green often associated with higher education for a reason. print them out like you would a photo to scale. its easier to change peoples opinions that way instead of whining and pointing at a screen. its clear you need to take charge of the situation before group think sets in. tell them yo have already half way through (not half finnished) changing the rest of the shit eveyone has done
We set the color based on our school colors. (Rutgers) and they've agreed they want it to be red so no going back there. And i know this is def not my best work. They tell me they like it and its done and i look at them like they're retarded cause this looka ugly as fuck.
I personally think pic related looks better but they didn't like it. It needs to be revamped completely.
Thanks for the opinions. Keep it coming guys.
The text on this one really needs to be centered though.
And I think the Continue button should be a little flatter.
Pic explains what I mean
