                           People don’t notice

                               “That’s when I know
                            WordPress is doing its job:
                           when people aren’t even aware
                              they’re using it because
                              they’re so busy using it!

How *Not* To Get Noticed                     WordCamp 2007




                    Our goals were simple:
How *Not* To Get Noticed                  WordCamp 2007




                           Findability,
How *Not* To Get Noticed                  WordCamp 2007




                           consistency,
How *Not* To Get Noticed                   WordCamp 2007




                   and something called
                 “unconscious design” or
                   “transparent design.”
How *Not* To Get Noticed                     WordCamp 2007




To start, we could have looked at other models.
How *Not* To Get Noticed                                                             WordCamp 2007




                      Solo Blogger                Power User             Pro Admin




                                     Consultant                Teacher




But instead, developed personas based on research.

                      Users don’t care what
                       designers intended.

           People don’t like surprises.

                           “You have to show people
                              something they've
                              never seen before.
                             And if they've seen it,
                            you have to show them
                                 in a new way.”

    People like it when you know
       what they’re thinking.

People think of their media as objects.
How *Not* To Get Noticed                   WordCamp 2007




And people refer to objects using nouns.

                           Nouns!

How *Not* To Get Noticed                      WordCamp 2007




People should navigate by nouns, not verbs.

         Anticipate what people need.
       Don’t be brief at the cost of clarity.
                Show, don’t tell.
          Never stop at a dead end.
