The 10 Commandments of Web Design

mosesTonight I noticed an article in Business Week called The 10 Commandments of Web Design.

  1. Thou shalt not abuse Flash.
  2. Thou shalt not hide content.
  3. Thou shalt not clutter.
  4. Thou shalt not overuse glassy reflections.
  5. Thou shalt not name your Web 2.0 company with an unnecessary surplus or dearth of vowels.
  6. Thou shalt worship at the altar of typography.
  7. Thou shalt create immersive experiences.
  8. Thou shalt be social.
  9. Thou shalt embrace proven technologies.
  10. Thou shalt make content king.

The article also has a neat slideshow called “best and worst of the web” which is worth the time and shouldn’t be missed!

  1. They left out “Thou shalt offer basic useful behavior for people with scripting turned off, and a clear indication that scripting may be required for certain features.”

    On which point they fail.
