There are many great top 10 lists for developers and designers but there are some basic concepts that clients should be familiar with. Many clients will enter into a web design/development contract with no knowledge of what it takes to design and develop a website. So here is my top ten list of things every client should know.

Understanding the constraints of the Web as a medium

The web is a growing medium but it is important to understand that a website is not on a piece of paper, you cannot control how anyone sees it, and it is a constantly changing medium.  There are principles and rules that need to be followed.

A website designer always has two customers:

The site owner

- who is paying the bills, who wants something professional, state of the art, exciting, and attractive.

The visitors to the site (or site user)

- who just wants to find what they are looking for as fast as possible.

It’s a very tough balancing act so I will share the following with you to help educate you about these constraints and rules.

Doing case studies is a method of research. Case studies are in-depth investigations into real-life cases

Based upon data and research that help you to identify a problem and suggest strategies and resolutions.  It also an important way to see how other put key concepts into action.  I will from time to time share what I have learned in my case studies here.
