How To Balance Usability and Design When Building a Website

It is all about perception when we talk about ugliness and beauty in web design. My ‘ugly’ may be your ‘beauty’ and vice versa, but how does it happen that many usable websites are ugly for the majority of users? ‘Usability comes first’ is a true rule of website development, but design plays not lesser importance in creating great user experience. Website designers make a huge mistake when focus around usability alone, just because it is thought to be more important for users. Usability and design should go together as CSS and PHP, as Header and Footer, as content and layout.

Finally, the goal of webmasters is to achieve lasting collaboration with users, but design and usability can’t make this if taken separately, no way.

15 Responsive Web Design Issues You Don’t Want to Deal With

Responsive web design is not only about pretty layouts and fashionable templates. Your utmost goal is to provide users with a uniform user experience across all devices.

Even as I write this, I see Chrome’s own 3 barred icon looking at me from the corner of the screen. Behind that I can see iTunes with a hamburger sitting pretty aside my favourite song. Even one of my favourite games, Football Manager, has recently employed that ever present hamburger. This simple icon has solved a problem, and in it defined a standard.

Improve Customer Support Through Pre-emptive Design

There is a common misconception that in the year 2014 the need for exemplary customer service (and online customer service in particular) has been fully internalized and acknowledged. That most Software as a Service (SaaS) owners are fully aware of its important role in customer onboarding and retention. I regret to say we are still a very long way from this utopia. A lot of work still needs to be put into improving online customer service for many SaaS and eCommerce sites.
