Presenting information online isn’t as simple as slapping a box on a page and throwing the content inside it. While that might seem an obvious statement all too often that’s exactly what happens, especially where forms are involved.
The development process often sees a visual designer divorced from the process, with an application programmer given sole responsibility for layout.
The end result is almost always a user interface driven by coding principles. User interface design is an art, and not one that many programmers will ever learn.
Above is a sneak peak at an upcoming website whose success will depend heavily on how easily users find interacting with it. By breaking up logically similar elements into visually distinct groups and focussing on the treatment of each element on the page I hope that when the site is launched late in 2011 that it proves to be simple for users to work with and a huge success for the national sporting body behind this project.
