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.

The Upcycled City: Reclaiming the Street

The Upcycled City: Reclaiming the Street | Communication design | Scoop.it

Despite an admittedly strong preference for the automobile, Los Angeles and other forward-thinking cities are now re-allocating public (and private) land away from the car so that people can use the space for other purposes. 

The automobile remains the best transportation option in all but a few U.S. cities. However, we can strike a better balance with how we use the precious resource of space in our cities. By dedicating so much land to traveling comfortably and quickly by car, we miss out on using that land to create interesting places to travel to. While some communities may still require copious amounts of parking and travel lanes, others are developing different neighborhood priorities, like green space, local business presence, or better biking and walking infrastructure. We need to plan for flexibility, for the accommodation of what we cannot yet imagine.

The misunderstood practice of content curation

The misunderstood practice of content curation | Communication design | Scoop.it

What would you do if someone tried to dismiss the value of curation in a way that is very misleading? 


I was faced with that situation earlier this week. A very controversial post forced me to take a stand. In this post, I address all the arguments to prove that the author based her conclusions on her limited experience. 


There is not one way to curate content. It's important to realize that.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Communication design | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Social Media Marketing: 3 Digital Local Marketing Tactics You Must Use in 2015

Social Media Marketing: 3 Digital Local Marketing Tactics You Must Use in 2015 | Communication design | Scoop.it
Eight in 10 American adults are now online, and teenagers and millennials are permanently glued to smartphones and tablets. So, for a local business looking to market its products and services digitally, the iron has never been hotter.

But which tactics to use? How about email? Yep, email is still as relevant today as it has ever been. Did you know, for example, that 91 percent of consumers check their email daily, and that 66 percent have made a purchase online as a result of an email marketing message?

What about social? Around three-quarters of online adults use social media, with Facebook driving almost two-thirds of all traffic to Shopify sites.

And don’t forget about your online reputation – 79 percent of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and a one-star increase in your Yelp rating can lead to a 5-9 percent increase in revenue.

Check out the visual below for three digital local marketing tactics you must use in 2015, which comes courtesy of Brand Muscle.

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Miroslav Tichý’s Vagabond Voyeurism

Miroslav Tichý’s Vagabond Voyeurism | Communication design | Scoop.it

With Miroslav Tichý’s “Trap for a Voyeur” now on view atGalerie Christophe Gaillard in Paris, it’s time to decide whether the late Czech photographer’s output is sinister or seductive.

Tichý is known for capturing covert shots of unbeknowing women. The artist wandered around the streets and parks of Kyjov, Czechoslovakia, and whenever he spotted a woman he liked the look of, a body he could desire from a distance, he took her photograph. His work was surreptitious: it wasn’t that he asked her. To call him a “voyeur,” as does the exhibition’s title, is to put it lightly.

Using data collected from Numbeo—the “world’s largest database of user contributed data about cities and countries worldwide”—web resource Movehub has created an infographic that points out the cost of living in different countries around the world. 

According to Movehub, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) was used to determine the living costs in the countries, which takes into account the prices for groceries, transportation, restaurants and utilities. 

Switzerland, Norway, Venezuela and Iceland have been identified as countries with the highest living cost, while India, Nepal, Pakistan and Tunisia have the lowest cost of living.
