If you’re not leading your website visitors to take specific actions, they’ll just randomly browse through your pages, look at odd text and icons, then leave without buying anything.

No Such Thing As Perfect :: Mule Design Studio
Q: Is it possible for a designer to look at their designs from a brand new user’s perspective? Over the years, have you learned how to do this even a little bit better than when you began? Sometimes I feel like I can, and that with more practice I’ll be even better, but people keep saying that I should suck it up and have other people test my designs for me.
