Web Design Haikus

Revolting Development

Here are some bits of hard-won web design wisdom presented in bite-sized chunks.

That site is gorgeous!
Top custom work achieves that
Options panels won’t

WordPress themes are great
But don’t make you an artist
You will need more skills

My CMS rocks!
It’s better than the others
Just because it’s mine

Those photos are huge!
Straight from the camera? Just don’t.
Slows your site like sludge

Dropdowns are evil
If there are lots, it’s a mess
OK, I’ve warned you

Pixel perfection
It’s impressive and pretty
Don’t forget the rest!

First in Google search
I want you to promise that!
Get good content first

Woe is my website!
I hired the cheapest guy
Why does it look bad?

Don’t want responsive?
You have got to be kidding
There go all phone sales

Can you fix my site?
I won’t give you a log-in
And you can’t see it

Great Inflated Expectations, For Better And Worse

This matrix, originally written by someone in China, is dead-on, a refreshing shot of reality in this world of preposterous expectations.
