Stickynotes episode 16, Oct 8 2020
Details from this session
We all think we can design better interfaces for popular sites. Why do they build them the way they do?
You may notice all the design studies out there where somebody takes part of a popular interface and redesigns it to be “better” in some way. We all have interfaces we love to hate.
So why didn’t the company design it that way to start with? Is it because they didn’t have the creative juice to think of that idea?
Probably not. It’s only if you’re inside that team that you become aware of all the constraints that they have to work with. Legacy architecture, legal considerations, compliance issues, even results from user research, can dictate that the company goes live with a less sexy or less optimal solution.
