To craft well-designed websites, you have to know 50 names for "blue" and the difference between a font and a typeface. You probably have a degree in illustration or graphic design, or maybe you attended some hip code school in Oakland and call yourself a User Experience Architects Right?

Nope! In fact, there are numerous small, simple and practical ways to vastly improve the look and usability of a website, no matter how creative you are(n't). In this talk, we'll explore ten of them together, using research and proven solutions to see how the impact as a whole for both clients and users is greater than the sum of its parts. Make your websites more attractive, easier to use and better designed without feeling like you're wasting your time or effort.

Clear presentation of actionable information. Excellent delivery with varied pace. Would have liked primary source for studies cited.

This was great. Good principles that were easy to digest even for non-design folks. Slides, volume, and pacing were all good, and talk was what it claimed to be. Well done.

A very solid presentation. The parts about the current trends and header-blindness were entirely new to me from the UX course I took 5 years ago. I wish there had been more information to cover and maximize the time, but it was a good presentation as far as it went. Delivery had a good amount of humor and enthusiasm for the material.

I appreciated the outline and recaps throughout the presentation. Pacing, explanations, and examples were all excellent.

I really enjoyed the way you presented this information. There was a lot of detail in the page layout and styling that I don't give much thought to, and it will really help me with future projects. Thanks!

The talk was easy to follow and full of good information. I fight with our designers on several of the points (contrast between text on top of images being the biggest issue), so I'm hoping if I share the information from this talk with them, they will finally "get it".
