It’s great to land on a website that both looks good and works well, but it doesn’t always happen that way. Sometimes you go to a website and it works great, but the look is not appealing at all (I’m looking at you, Reddit), while sometimes you go to a website that is very attractive, but it seems useless as it just doesn’t work very well. Do you prefer websites to be goodlooking or functional?
Again, it would great if websites had both, good looks and functionality, but it’s not always the case. And at the same time, we tend to get upset when our favorite websites change their design or the way they work. Think of Facebook that is always changing. It’s very hard for them to please everyone.
So what are your expectations when you enter a website beyond the content that you expect to find there? Surely web designers all over would love to have the answer to this question.
What will keep you coming back again and again? Do you want a site with eye-popping complimentary colors and lots of bright images that catch your eye?
Or do you want to make sure that the website works well? Do you want to make sure that the site navigation is really clear and that all the links clearly work? Will this keep you coming back to the site on a frequent basis?
