Topic

Steve Krug, author of Don’t Make Me Think, will explain why he’s become convinced that there actually is a short list of design conventions that make some Web pages inherently better than others—things that very few sites get right, even though they’re not all that hard to do.

Abstract: Is there really one ideal way to do Web pages—a definitive “best practice”? And if there is, does that mean that all pages should basically look alike? What about creativity and innovative design? Steve Krug, author of Don’t Make Me Think, will explain why he’s become convinced that there actually is a short list of design conventions that make some Web pages inherently better than others—things that very few sites get right, even though they’re not all that hard to do. Besides spelling out his vision of the perfect Web page, Steve will also present his brand new Site Navigation Identification Chart: a handy tool that classifies the different ways to do navigation and helps you choose the best one for your site.
Bio: Steve Krug evaluates and improves interfaces for a wide variety of clients, primarily in online services and the Web, including Apple, AOL, Netscape, BarnesandNoble.com, and Lexus.com. In workshops based on his book, Don’t Make Me Think, he helps people think like a usability expert and make low-cost/no-cost testing an everyday part of the design process. His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense (“just me and a few well-placed mirrors”) is based in Chestnut Hill, MA.
