OK .. here's the scoop...
I have always had a strong feeling about website 'functionality' being FAR more important than design. It is evident here at gigposters.com... no Flash, no cool graphics.. concentration on information, and navigation, etc..
I was recently lead me to this site:
No offence Al, but this site, TO ME .. is crap. Why .. because it is not evident how to get anywhere from first arrival.. useless. I spent minutes (which are hours in 'surfing' time) trying to figure out what is what.. where to go .. letting shitty Flash load up .. and managing pop-up windows, etc..
There are SO many sites out there, by design students, that (to me) have no purpose, content or functionality .. they are just there as a 'portfolio' .. or because someone was bored.. useless info clogging up this web of ours.
Sorry .. I don't mean to be an absolute asshole on the situation .. I just need someone to explain to me the other viewpoint..
