The net is flooded with apps – for smartphones and tablets. But web sites are still better viewed on a computer, right? So the marketing department is happy and web design is business as usual. Maybe because apps and web sites are considered as two different things, rather than two versions of the same. You may create coherence in web strategy by looking at app and website as the same project – in different versions, admittedly – with adapted features and design. And the task of doing this becomes easier if you design for the small mobile phones first.

The postman is somewhat special. He brings all sorts of things. Postcards from Jamaica. Bills, too, unfortunately, but it’s not his fault, after all. He also brings software as mailorder. You can pay with creditcard, even cash and get change. Or, if you’re not at home, he leaves a note, so you can get the stuff at the postoffice. And then he’s able to tell – you don’t even need to push his buttons – how much postage for a letter for Bhutan. It’s all very interactive.

Technical enthusiasm, please

1 SEP 2000 // web
Usability and accessibility on the net becomes more and more equal to unlimited choices and professionalizing of the user, who thus will be the responsible to be able to get the information from the websites. You may say I am puritan. On the other hand, when I shuffle the web, I may too say that I have the right to be puritan. Because when I shuffle the web, I meet a overwhelming overkilling technical gadgets. For instance, it’s no fun watching a managing director and a marketing director being morphed »live«, even without all the intermedie states (it could easily have been done with a simpel javascript rollover rather than with a plug-in demanding doodah).

The user rules

1 MAJ 2000 // design / web
Usability and accessibilty on the web becomes synonymous with free choice and professionalizing of the user. Thus, she is more and less self responsible for being able to recieve the information of the websites. The computer is putting still greater demands to the user, but despite of that it is easier to use today than ever. There is a constant flow of new applications and new version with numerous possibilities, and you’ll easily feel like a freak, for instance if you use Word as a mere texttool. Usability is a must, but behind the nice interface the computer and the application is totally incomprehensible.
