A Note on UI Design from a Data Chick

The chick doesn’t build UIs, but she does use them. And she doesn’t like some elements of them.

I don’t normally work in the UX/UI design world, but I know enough from constantly filling out web forms that too many designs out there are destined for a special ring of data Hell. If you’ve followed any of my web form rants on Twitter, you may have heard this before…but it should be repeated.

Go learn her list of peccadilloes and think about your own. Then, bother your designers and developers when they do something convenient for themselves once, but annoying to users thousands of times.

(Thanks to gimlet for the link.)

UPDATE: Karen Lopez has emailed me to let me know she is a chick, not a guy. I’ve changed the pronouns and whatnot to reflect that.
