Here’s a great article from Smashing Magazine on 10 Harsh Truths About Corporate Web Design. I’ve worked online in some form or fashion for about 10 years and this article really gets to the heart of a lot that I’ve experienced. My favorite truths are
- You need a separate web division
- Periodic redesign is not enough
- Your website cannot appeal to everyone
- Design by committee brings death
I think I like these so much because I can related to them– I have lived them.
