  2. 2. The great challenge for web designers is to make sure they stay away from making these errors, the kind of errors that remain in the background and rear their ugly heads when website visitors actually start using the site.
  3. 3. Let’s take a look at 15 of the biggest mistakes to be made
  4. 4. #1 - Lack of Collaboration at The Conceptualization Stage The process of collaboration is limited to the client and concerned designers.
