Designing For Credibility

Many Web producers adopt the attitude of, “If I build it, they will come,” when developing a site, as if by their simply building a great new mousetrap, the world will beat a path to their door (or URL, as the case may be). But it takes much more than an innovative idea to make a successful Web site. This session explores one of the most easily overlooked factors—visual credibility: Does your site look trustworthy to your audience? In this session, Jason will lead you through exercises to determine the most effective designs you can use to inspire confidence in your visitors.
