UI Design Goes Straight to Hell

webdesignhell UI Design Goes Straight to Hell
Came across this very funny comic blog How a Web Design Goes Straight to Hell on Oatmeal. It’s based on the author Matthew Inman’s real experience and he actually used the exact words his client once said to him.

Just reading through it I can recall I’ve received similar comments in the past from clients on all sorts of design, UI or not. It’s just so real that I am thinking about print and frame this and carry it with me. When the moment comes, I’ll just hand it over to the client, kick the door open, storm out and slam it close behind me so that the client will have a very private minutes to enjoy this piece.

The problem is, not every one can read your code or do photoshop, but everyone, including the client’s mother, her pet groomer, your boss and his gardener, can be a user interface expert.

RIA has lot to do with UI design but sometimes I do feel sorry for designers. The most creative ones usually suffer the most.

    When I’m just new in web designing, I’ve also experienced this to a client. But I take it in a positive way. I look on the angles where I’ve done some mistakes and correct it.
