People often discuss the challenges of designers working with developers – developers working with usability experts – usability experts working with seo – etc. Each of these conflicts can lead to a subpar website if not resolved.
We’ve all seen websites that functioned well, but were seriously lacking better design… remember myspace.com? We’ve also encountered websites and blogs filled with links to help get them ranked on search engines while sacrificing content integrity. Lastly, we’ve all found that beautiful flash site that we could look at for hours, but still have no idea how to find the information we went there to find. These are common place and most sites fall into one of these categories. Even our own monkeyfoot.com site fails in some of these areas.
