Can't unsee

There is no video game that can turn you into a Good designer but this new game which basically tests your knowledge of interface design. You could feel like a great designer if you master its three rounds. It is known as Can’t Unsee which is a web-based game and presents two choices of iOS interface designs.

There will three rounds asking you to pick between two mock-ups presented side by side that start out with design choices that seem obviously wrong, the picture then escalates and it becomes nearly indistinguishable. You can say that it is like ‘spot the difference game’ but only one of the choices is correct, Can’t Unsee is developed by UX designer Alex Kotliarskyi.

In the first round, you will see a chat bubble in a messaging app with an improper width. The second trial consists of inconsistent capitalized texts on the screen. The game looks good for the designer community but Kotliarskyi calls this game a way to test your attention to details.

A graphic designer who played the game, he points out the reason behind choosing a search bar that had sharp rather than rounded corners in the game:

“Just because Google and others are doing it doesn’t mean every search bar needs to have a radius on its corners,” he writes. “Some brands and logos might do better with the 90-degree corners, or some might do well without having any box at all and opting just for the search button to click on.”

He also said that design is an art which can’t be reduced to the 1s and 0s, or rights and wrongs. Most of the answer is based on universally accepted design traits like even spacing between text blocks and consistent capitalization. Even for non-designers the answers just came instinctively mostly based on our common sense but also based on your experience of seeing iOS design principles.
