I had the second design tested with users through a “Heuristic Evaluation”. With this test method you use a certain set of rules, or “best practices”, to view a website and quickly identify problems. They found this new concept to be better than the previous one, because in their opinion the agenda page was well developed and universally recognizable. They also liked planning an activity, since you go through simple steps and are guided during the process.
Most of the feedback I received was aimed at improving some of the visual elements. The flow, on the other hand, was very clear and they knew where to navigate too. It was mainly the details that I had to pay a lot of attention too in finishing my prototype.
On the agenda page I wanted to design a digital calendar. Depending on the culture or country where someone comes from, the first day of the week starts on Monday or Sunday. In the Chinese calendar, for example, it starts on Monday. But in Christian and Arab countries the week starts on Sunday. For this reason, I consciously chose to give the weekends a different color in my design to avoid confusion.
