Designing a Children’s Web UI: 25 Examples

Posted in Web with 10 Comments

Designing web sites for adults can be hard sometimes, but what happens when you have to design a site for somebody totally out of your line of thinking? Children tend to be simple-minded so when most of these sites were put together, I’m sure that was kept in mind. Take a look at these sites though, if you look closely there are similarities in the way these designers put these sites together.

    There’s one common factor: All sites contain lots and lots of bright-coloured images.

    I always love the conundrum of designing sites for kids, especially if there is a purchase angle to it all. Firstly you have to intice the kids to play and interact. Then you have to convince the moms and dads that that buying from a kids site is simple and grown up enough for adults. You’re actually catering for 2 diverse groups: the influencer and the decision maker. Getting this right really floats my boat.

    Great selection – does my heart good to see all the colours and big “does what it says on the tin” buttons.

    Yea Kelly, you really do have to design for two different groups of people a lot of the time. Great point!

    I guess that when more young your public bigger is images, use color primary, bit less text e more icons.

    In other words the design is more attractive.

    hi,

    i design a lot of corporate website where the target audience range can be very large. When designing for children’s websites however, the range only consists of a few years, 4-7 8-11 12-15 for example, where each group is completely different. very challenging!
