THE BIG DOG
Over time you'll come to realise my ever growing love for hats and sexy UI.
The usability of a website has a huge impact on it's effectiveness. A website should be simple and intuitive for all users on any platform. For example, a responsive website is a single website that adapts to any screen size so it's as easy to use on mobile as it is on tablet and desktop – no pinching or horizontal scrolling required. The design instinctively adapts to the device it is being viewed on so it looks great on a mobile, tablet and desktop.
A website should be consistent in all aspects from design to functionality. Users of a website should be able to navigate all pages of the website with the same understand they gained from the homepage. Furthermore, the theme and design should remain the same across the website to ensure users recognise recurring features such as home buttons and to ensure users relate each page to the websites brand.
A website should be easily functional for all people regardless of disabilities meaning that all websites should be effectively designed to suit the needs of uses who have impaired vision or any other disability that may negatively impact their ability to use the website. This means designers have to take a number of aspects into consideration such as the size of text, colour schemes and alt tags for improved text to speech capabilities.
