Review my design

In the age of lockdown, many of us are turning to quizzes to bide our time. I am working on a platform that brings those people together to share their trivia with the world.

In my previous post, I introduced what Trivl is. Now the design has been completed, would love to hear your thoughts on the Figma prototype.

How did you find the experience?
  1. It was great 🔥
  2. Could be improved (explain in a comment) ⚖️
  3. Not great 💩

    Hey, overall you information architecture is pretty good.

    Some things that stuck out a bit to me:

    1. Your hero image seems fairly empty / not related thematically to the site.
    2. You might consider a color palette that's a bit brighter. I could definitely see each of the main categories being a specific color, might help spruce up the intro.

    Btw, the "see more" link goes to the wrong place. I'm guessing it should go to "categories."

    I'd really lean into pushing a really interesting trivia question. Get that first click, then prompt them to continue exploring different categories and questions etc.

      Thanks for the feedback Ben. Nice catch on the "view more" link, i have gone ahead and fixed that.

      You are right the hero image doesn't serve much of a purpose so might remove it. As for the palette, I went for a moon soaked forest at night palette to mimic an owls habitat.

      As for adding colour on categories, i tend to use colour as a tool to focus your eyes or where it has meaning.

      This is also user-generated content so each category would need a colour which either means a lot of colours (potentially risking the visual identity) or a fixed palette and duplicates.

      I like the idea of having a random question at the top, it's the focus of the platform after all so will experiment and see what i can come up with.
