Why Write about Bloopers?

 <  Day Day Up  >  

Why did I write a book about Web design bloopers? Two reasons.

First, by pointing out common design blunders and showing how to avoid them, I hope to save Web designers the pain and cost of making those mistakes themselves . As a user -interface consultant, I review many websites for clients and find the same mistakes again and again in different sites. I'd like to help the Web industry get beyond endlessly repeating the same mistakes and move on to a point where other, higher level issues are the main concern.

Second, by showing example after example of mistakes in corporate and agency websites, I hope to demonstrate how poorly designed much of the Web is and how unacceptably bad the experience of using it is for most people. I'm doing my part to help the Web industry realize that poor usability is holding back the Web's growth and success. The remedy is careful design focused on ensuring productive, enjoyable user experiences, supplemented by systematic usability testing of sites before deployment.
