  • Hi - I’m Phil Smears from sdesign1. We build accessible, usable and compliant web sites. Today I’ll be talking about usability and building a site based around the needs of users and not the needs of the CEO or marketing director. We think if you do that you will gain more respect, trust and ultimately SALES!

      • ‘ Don’t make me think’ – Steve Krug
      • ‘ Ultimately, users visit your web site for its content. Everything else is just the backdrop. The design is there to allow people access to the content.’
      • ‘ Flowers are nice, but don't put them in your doorway’
      • A web site is like a car. New models are brought out but it’s usually a good idea to keep the gear stick in the same place.
