Biggest Mistakes in WebDesign
I have never come across a site that hasn’t worked on another browser (thankfully) but if I did, I wouldn’t even know how to react. If you care about getting good clientele, websites should definitely work on every browser.
The Association of International Glaucoma Societies was super horrendous! I hope that site wasn’t serious because someone sadly put a TON of time into it all. Oh wow…
Genicap has a really lame layout for a homepage or whatever that was when you first go to the website. I couldn’t really tell what their website was about still within their “mission statement” until the very last paragraph. It should be sweet and simple not a paragraph.
The Mars Hill image doesn’t look anything like a church, since when did churches have sewing machines?
Contrast is a huge deal when making a website. Not everyone can see every color! Just because it “matches” does not mean that that color combination should go all together in one section on a website.
Instead of using gray quotes on the GLBT he should have chosen maybe a white if he wanted to keep to that certain scheme. Or simply hire someone to choose colors for you if you’re that bad. Stick to programming!
With the Nielsen Norman Group it looks like what he said “They were authorized when making this” is most likely true. The programmer probably doesn’t see anything wrong with the site because it works perfectly well for them which will most likely lead to more frustration because the programmer will have to fix it and won’t know if it’s really working or not.
In today’s society people depend on the internet WAY too much for their advertising. It’s nothing like it used to be when people would go to the local grocery store and hang up ads on the local bulletin board, unless their pet is lost. Kind of sad.
WOW the Accept Jesus one is all over the place! Why is there a random cat at the bottom left running? This website creeped me out.
The Tampax website needs a little help with the sideways head tilting navigation, no way someone on their period is going to want to spend the time reading through those!
The University of Calgary website should be super ashamed considering they had people that ya know..are smart. I would not want to go to that school with a website looking like that; even though MATC’s is horrendous. That navigation would take way too much time. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like signing up for classes their. More meat?
Only thing I am going to say about Qualcomm’s navigation is that it’s not impressive having moving navigation. Just distracting and dumb looking.
I remember about ten years ago I would go on postsecret.com and loved that website but now I realize that it is hard to read with the purple and black going on. I also didn’t really know how to navigate it.
Archive.org must have some ginormous computers and their text looks big to them or something. Wow, that’s tiny! My mouse can barely go over just one word without hitting two buttons.
http://www.arngren.net/ looks like craigslist and amazon threw up on it! That’s all I can say.
Never click a “Click Here” unless it has a description on where it is taking you. Sometimes even then it’s to mess with you and possibly give you a virus..
I’ve always disliked flash. Most of the time I was on a site that had it took forever to load and it wasn’t anything that thrilling to look at.
The only place that should have GIF’s is if that website is for pure photos and posting like tumblr, imgur.com or even 4chan. A regular website should not have GIF’s on it!
