Great design = Great websites?


Yes and no.

A recent Ski holiday to the Alps proved and long held belief of mine on what makes a truly great website.

Take a look at the two websites below:


A

B

Which do you think is the best designed website? Many of you would no doubt go for B.
Now let me ask you which you think I found the most helpful during my holiday and which website I came back to for information. The answer is A.

Why A?

A isn’t particularly well designed, boring some might say, but the reason behind my visit to both websites was to get information on the resort I was visiting. B looked ok but the information was hidden behind menus and flashy graphics, I got annoyed navigating around looking for information I couldn’t find. This is a fatal sin in the web design world, your website is there to serve a purpose, whether that is to pass on information or sell to your customers. If you frustrate your users you will lose them.

The perfect solution?

Is the content of A but with a modern and clean design that works for the user rather than against. That’s the kind of websites we build at Beo.

  9. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
