Tips for Designing Elevator Buttons

Tips for Designing Elevator Buttons

1.1 elevator button overall shape
In fact, this is a problem I didn't even think of. In our daily lives, ordinary elevators are basically regular horizontal and vertical alignment layouts. The reason why alignment layout becomes our routine may be a modern building structure: buildings, where each floor is neatly lined with several neighbors, and then the upper layer continues to follow this arrangement. Layer code. The building where the child draws a simple stroke is also drawing the outermost large frame and then trying to adjust the aligned small squares. This clever arrangement is our deep-rooted view of the concept of "lou".
The various unconventional elevator buttons shown in the above picture are very unsuccessful if applied in everyday situations. Elevators in everyday life are designed to help people save time. It is characterized by large traffic volume, high frequency of use and high efficiency. The use of an unconventional styling elevator button makes it necessary to perceive or remember the operational model each time, only making the rider more annoyed. But for leisure and entertainment, stealing is great: non-daily occasions, laid-back moods and plenty of time, making people interested in learning interesting things. If I have the honor to meet, I will be very happy to take a photo with my mobile phone.
1.2 elevator button material
The elevator button has two forms of floor number and button integration and separation. Only floor numbers and buttons are discussed here.
Common materials for buttons are white silver, black silver, black white and white black.
Identification analysis: the right side of the picture E, P, b, black is white, black is black, silver is black, text and background can form a larger contrast, easier to identify; but the left side of the picture B and O on the silver side The white characters are relatively low in recognition and unsightly in the case of non-frontal viewing; the overall silver shown in S has similar problems.
Response analysis after pressing: After clicking, the button needs to immediately feedback “operational success”, and the form of feedback also has a certain relationship with the material of the button. In the form of feedback, individuals believe that digital feedback is the best solution. The process of taking the elevator should be: have a certain target floor, search for the floor number, operate the corresponding number button, confirm the operation, and confirm the arrival. The number of floors is a clue.
In the example chosen, B, O and P are white characters. When pressed, the number will light up. The silver and black bottoms are isolated from the light, and the bottom does not change, so attention is focused on the number of operations. And B, O also enhances feedback through the "leakage" process of the outer ring. When E is pressed, the entire button should light up. This is also the only possible form of feedback for the black button on a white background. In this case, the most intense change is the change in background color. Feedback is enough, but it is too much. b is feedback feedback using only "light leakage". As far as visual inspection is concerned, S is more likely to cause suspicion. There is no gap outside the button. It is not like the feedback of "light leakage". The operator cannot immediately get feedback on the success of the press and can only be judged by whether the elevator is moving or not.
