Here’s a quickie from 37 signals blog. Architects: 1998 Called and it wants it’s sites back
It’s a clever post worth reading.
I agree with the writers POV. Big time. Sites should be easy. Simple. With a clear definition of where to go and what to do. This is imperative today given the freedom designers have with expanded pages, wide screen monitors and rails programming. Just because you have access to all the bells, whistles, mapping, video, flash, and lot’s of design space, no one is forcing you to use all of it.
So who here has a flawlessly designed site? One that incorporates the tenants of good UI, design and clear concise copy? Feel free to post a link. It will give some our critics a chance to voice their expertise.
