42 COLOR Don’t make the screen too bright or too dim. Use bright colors for small areas, light colors for large areas. Use bright colors to emphasize, non- bright to de-emphasize. Provide visual cues. Use colors to group items.

43 COLOR Emphasize separation with contrasting colors (r/g). Convey similarity with similar colors (o/y). Use desaturated or spectrum center colors for text (y/g). Use darker, spectrally extreme colors for background (b/k).

48 TIPS SCREENS  Well-designed screens require 20-25% less time to read.  Users have 25% less errors with well- designed screens.  Users spend 40% less time making decisions with well-designed screens.

49 TIPS SCREENS: Color  Don’t count on a strong ability to distinguish color. (Remember that over 25% of the population is color blind.)  Stay with basic colors that show on all monitors.  Don’t give users too much to remember; 5 organizational colors max.

50 TIPS SCREENS: Color  Keep common associations. Red=danger Yellow=warning Blue=cooler temperature  Be consistent with color use.

51 TIPS SCREENS: Color  2-COLOR COMBINATIONS GOOD white/green gold/cyan gold/green green/magenta POOR red/blue red/green red/purple white/yellow

52 TIPS SCREENS: Color  3-COLOR COMBINATIONS GOOD white/gold/green white/gold/blue white/gold/magenta gold/lavender/green POOR yellow/red/green red/blue/green red/magenta/blue white/cyan/yellow

53 TIPS SCREENS: Graphics  Every image should have a purpose.  Graphics should have a consistent style.  Align each image with something.  Avoid tiny images with a lot of detail.  Each graphic should fit entirely on a screen.  Avoid unnecessary embellishment.

54 TIPS SCREENS: Typefaces  Detailed fonts only work at very large sizes.  Medium weights work better than light or very heavy fonts.  Vertical and horizontal lines appear sharper than diagonals and curves on a monitor.

55 TIPS SCREENS: Typefaces  Condensed fonts are difficult to read.  Avoid script fonts.  Reverse type is harder, more tiring to read.  All caps are harder to read. (Short labels are OK in upper case).

56 TIPS SCREENS: Typefaces  Serifs are OK for body copy provided they are large enough with short line lengths and more space between the lines.  Chunk text.  Be kind to your reader. If it looks hard to read, it is.

57 TIPS SCREENS: Typefaces  Serifs are OK for body copy provided they are large enough with short line lengths and more space between the lines.  Chunk text.  Be kind to your reader. If it looks hard to read, it is.
