Yep. Yep. Totally, Yeah.

Working on a new project with King Arthur and our friend, the Rebel, I’ve had to start brainstorming website ideas. Fun. Makes my already achy head hurt more. But it’s necessary. As is research.

In doing my research, I came across this post about what 8 things need to be considered when designing a website.

Most important? Unreadable text.

Avoid fancy fonts, lots of bolding and underlining, and bad color choices. A traditional font in a dark color on a light background may seem simple, but it works because it’s readable. Remember, many of your visitors already have spent hours staring at the computer screen; you don’t want green text on an orange background to give them a headache. Also avoid using text that’s too small or too large, or text that changes sizes too often or too severely.

That’s probably my biggest pet peeve with websites. I don’t want my head to go all ‘splodey when I get to your site. Nobody should have to suffer that.

And music. They didn’t mention music. But they should. NOBODY needs music that plays automatically. Give people the option, if you simply MUST include it, but don’t force it on site visitors.

So, yeah. That’s where I’m at today.
