7 Web Design Disasters Drive People Crazy

7 Web Design Disasters Drive People Crazy | Communication design | Scoop.it

A poorly designed website has real impacts, whether page views or sales. We won't hesitate to bounce away to another with a better user experience.

1. Requiring users to signup before browsing your site
2. Forgetting about multiple screens
3. Having ridiculous forms to fill out
4. Using hard to read or cutesy fonts
5. Implementing a Search bar that sucks
6. Bombarding the reader with a wall of text
7. Displaying your products with low-res images

MS - 8 Non stop animated gifs (you will discover what I'm talking about)

Marty Note
Agree with all 7 of these annoying disasters and would add an 8th - too many animated gifs all running at the same time with NO STOP.

A (more) complete picture of Design | Communication design | Scoop.it
In the last 15 years, design education has dramatically changed. Generally speaking, at the beginning of 2000s, design education was pretty much the job of art and design schools, and mostly had a learning-by-doing approach, involving hands-on studio-based assignments. It was rare to find a design course heavy on "lecture" format classes, unpacking the design process, or…

Milton Glaser: we talk drawing, ethics, Shakespeare and Trump with the graphic design legend

Milton Glaser: we talk drawing, ethics, Shakespeare and Trump with the graphic design legend | Communication design | Scoop.it

Milton Glaser is ready to talk ethics. It’s not the first time, either. Ours is one of a few recent interviews with the graphic designer and creator of the _I ❤ NY_ logo, in which he addresses some of the moral demands of his trade – questions of whether graphic design ought to compromise its integrity for the sake of meeting a client’s demands. On the subject of advertisers and the designers who work for them, Glaser is clear. “Your obligation is to the client, and not necessarily the public. In some cases, you’re encouraging people to buy things that they don’t need, or encouraging them to move in a direction that does not serve them. Frequently in advertising – and PR and journalism as well - we have to persuade people to do things that we don’t really believe in and that they don’t really believe in. Should you participate in something that encourages people to do something that is not good for them? I consider that a core question for journalists and practitioners of graphic art, but it’s too frequently overlooked because it is too painful to answer."

What if young people designed their own learning?

What if young people designed their own learning? | Communication design | Scoop.it
Across Australia some of these ideas are being put into practice. Some schools have dropped the notion of year levels to enable them to meet children at their point of need and acknowledge that not all students learn at the same pace.

Computer programs are enabling instruction tailored to the student by assessing where they are at and providing a tailored curriculum.

Capabilities , such as personal and social capability and critical and creative thinking, are being embedded in the curriculum. Work is under way to develop assessment measures. Teachers across Australia are working on developing new models of practice to support this approach.

We need to accelerate the change. We are wasting too much of students’ learning time and are failing to amplify their talents. To continue along the current path is increasingly unscientific, unjustifiable and plain dull.

Thousands of genes are involved in intelligence, according to a new study which effectively shatters any hopes of eugenicists that babies can be genetically designed to be clever. In one of the largest studies of the human genome to date, a group of 253 scientists from around the world identified 74 genetic variants that are associated with the number of years spent in formal education.

Design thinking in the corporate DNA

Design thinking in the corporate DNA | Communication design | Scoop.it
By Suzanne Pellican

We started our journey to bring design thinking into Intuit more than eight years ago. We call it Design for Delight (D4D) — because it’s not about the process; it’s about exceeding the expectations of our customers in ways they couldn’t imagine. We realized that not everyone had the necessary innovation skills. Most of our employees hadn’t been trained, in school or at other jobs, to solve problems with design thinking. So, we needed to build the capability into all 8,000 employees to spur on innovation and ensure we create amazing experiences for our customers.

Student’s Faucet Design Saves Water By Swirling It Into Beautiful Patterns

Student’s Faucet Design Saves Water By Swirling It Into Beautiful Patterns | Communication design | Scoop.it

Simin Qiu, the creator and designer of this concept designed the faucet such that it passes water via a double turbine .The latter rotates as the water courses through it thus bring about a lattice of elaborate and beautiful jets of water. Less water is used to form this intricate swirls, in fact it reduces the flow of water by 15%.This means that less water is utilized at any point in time, thus saving you water. Three nozzles are available all creating different water swirl patterns. The  Design concept award in 2014 was awarded to Qiu for this concept. In order to retain the sleek and elegant design, the operation of this faucet is carried out with a simple touch button at the top.
