When creating www.cloversigns.co.uk, I tried to make usability a key priority. This has paid off greatly – even though I never take the view point that my site is the best. Every site can be improved to make a better user experience.
A book I found indispensable while making the site was Steve Krug’s “Don’t Make Me Think”. It’s cheap from Amazon for what it’s worth, so I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
It covers the basics of designing websites for usability in a simple easy to read fashion. As I was reading it, I thought “that’s common sense, why write about it?” but when I actually looked at my site, I wan’t doing it!
So if you want to invest in something worthwhile, buy it now!
