What's Wrong With Web Design

Lots today on web design. Here's thoughts on what's wrong with it...

"In getting ready for my upcoming panel at WebVisions the panelists and I took a stab at listing what was wrong with Web design today.

I've not actually seen what my fellow panelists have listed, but I found it interesting to note that my list looks much as it would have 6-7 years ago, but for different reasons. There is still too much focus on technology and not enough on fundamentals. Content is still an issue. Style (or lack thereof) is still more important than clear and concise communication. The true value of design is still largely misunderstood on the Web.

I wanted to take a minute and talk about what's wrong with Web design and what can be done to make it right.
Too much focus on technology

A few years back it was Flash. People were constantly reinventing the wheel with their interfaces and frankly over-design and over-engineering ran rampant. We still see quite a bit of that today with Flash, but there have been great strides making Flash more accessible and I feel that much of the Flash used today is more appropriate than in those days."   continued ...   (Via Blue Flavored Blog)
