Bad Design of the was cause for the MISS UNIVERSE goof up

It doesn’t take a genius to look the card and judge how badly its been designed.

Design is KEEPING things simple and it surely takes absolutely zilch effort to ruin the basics of design.

How can designer take so much liberty to go insanely wrong.

May be sometimes designers in the attempt to make an “out of the world” design land up making “out of understanding” design.

That is the precise reason why DESIGN THINKING is a different ball game all together. Its not a plain button and layout design it surpasses the boundaries of design and digs into the user psychology and understanding of user behaviour.

Suggestions:

May be the layout could have been made more to the point. Mind you its a card not a marketing presentation or a web page that needed a study to be designed. A Plain list format would have also done the job. Or may be a horizontal hierarchy design as well would have served the purpose. But this bombardment of text seems illogical.

Is user experience all about users?

To design the best User Experience , pay attention to what users do, not what they say or ask for. Users don’t know what they want. They can only tell us what they don’t want or dislike and this is a universal phenomenon. For example: the audience going for movies can only like or dislike the movie they will never be able to exactly tell how the movie could have been better had the makers done this or that. Its a gamble in a sort of way.

Hence user studies can only aid this much is building a great user experience. Eventually the more empathetic you are towards solving the problem of the users the better are the chances of success in your user experience.
