Getting the basics right

User interface design is hard. When you look at a website and just don't feel good about it, that often comes from a poor placement. You can't find what you need, you get frustrated, and you leave.

Big companies have this problem (click for close-ups):

  • Apple: Why is "advanced" under "edit preferences" instead of under "advanced"? Or why isn't it called something else?

  • American Airlines:  Why is "My Reservations" – something I need every time, often in a hurry, under "Book a Cruise"?

Lesson: Watch out for simple layout mistakes. These kill customer confidence.
