Designing intuitive cards for easy data consumption is a challenge for most designers. They often don’t know of a better way to present the information other than to use a rudimentary list format.

The downside to a list format is that users can’t find and distinguish specific data quickly enough. They have to exert more cognitive effort to process the information.

The following data design tips can make your cards more intuitive. The key difference between a good card and a bad one is in how the data is organized and presented.

Prioritize Data Prominence

The first step to adding design magic is prioritizing the different data on your cards. Not every piece of data has equal importance. In this example, the picture and price of a house are the critical data that’ll influence the user’s decision.

If a house is not in their budget, they can’t even think about buying it. Also, if the house looks unappealing, they’ll pass on it. Therefore, the prices and images need more visual prominence.
