Web Design for Clients

Why can’t web designers and developers get together (and I think the 9rules network would be a perfect community to tackle this with the three amigos of Business LogsScrivs, Rundle, and Oliphant, spearheading the effort) to create a "Don’t Make Me Think" or XPLANE type of website geared for clients to help them understand the entire design process in extremely simple terms and why each aspect/role of the job (i.e. usability, information architecture, design, etc) is critical and important to the success of it. That way when someone wants to develop a web site, they can see what they should be doing and what information they should be collecting BEFORE they even approach a web company to do their site for them or even to gather a team to build something themselves. That way if a client approaches them without this knowledge, they can just point them to the site as an introduction to the design process (not to mention a great knowledge base to refer to if the client asks a question about something, such as "What’s wrong with having a flaming logo?"). I think if something like this was ever developed, it would be the keystone that would support the enter web development industry and make every developer’s job so much easier.

  1. That’s what I’m here for! To unload dishes of brilliance and pain at the same time! Need to have that Zen balance thing going you know. 🙂
