This past week, I was on the phone with a ‘programming guy’ who is starting up a web development business and he sent me, with great pride, to a site that he had designed. To say that it was horrific, is a gross understatement. It was actually worse than a page that we did for April Fools Day, when we started up two years ago. Take a look here to see it in all its beauty, including rotating and blinking text!
I’m not going to post this website but it got me thinking about what really constitutes good website design. My off the cuff summary:
It is visually appealing;
It gives the sense of professionalism;
It’s easy to figure out what it is and how to use it.
Of course, there is much that makes up good design. Some of it it apparent to all, and some is a mystery to all but one; the eye of the beholder.
