  1. 1. Design Practices
  2. 2. Design Practices 1  Plan exactly what design elements we want in the sites beforehand. E.g., drop-downs, auto-complete fields, modal windows.  Use only a limited number of design elements and make sure these will scale across all parts of our interface.  Identify key interaction points, i.e. what most users will want to access.
  3. 3. Design Practices 2  Key interaction points should be large-sized, and clearly visible.  Don't force the user to have to use the “Back” button to visit pages.  A user should not have to visit too many pages to get to the desired content. No more than 2-3 clicks.
  4. 4. Design Practices 3  Consistent style and user-interaction design (colors, form elements, lists) across all sites.  The user should be able to do what s/he anticipates. Consistent visual cues.  Don't set up links in such a way that users have no idea where they will end up.
  5. 5. Design Practices 4  Minimize mouse movement. Users should not have to move the mouse too far for each clickable operation.  Group relevant items close together in the layout. Keep all navigation clustered together, important links clustered together, etc.
