A key design principle of Oracle Alta UI is to engage users with more visual content. Use of visual and typograpical techniques make modern application pages more easily consumable and more pleasureable to use.
Strategic Use Of Visual Content
- Makes pages more browsable
- Makes important information pop
- Makes pages visually appealing & engaging
Use Data Visualizations And Info Graphics
- Use visuals to reduce cognitive load and increase insight
- Think graphical first!
- Show, don’t tell wherever possible
- Ensure data is clear in both purpose and display
- Visual fits the data (Be sure that you're using the right visual for the job)
- Visualization components are interactive and actionable, not just for display of static graphical information
- Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
- Strip visuals down to just the useful information
- Avoid visual clutter (e.g., Don’t overuse of icons)
- Purchase Attention for worthy and important information that should be heard above the noise
- Use font size, screen real estate allocation and relative location to other items on the page convey visual hierarchy and make the important information pop
- Design for browsability – people don’t read!
