I was talking to one of my colleagues today about the frustrations with design by committee. This is nothing new, but now that I work in government, I’ve found it’s a bit easier to fall into that habit.
I laughed at that, but then it dawned on me that I actually prefer the term â€˜hangover navigationâ€™. To me, it better echoes the headaches and frustrations that such navigation can end up giving the site user. So, listen to your committee. 90% of the feedback is usually contradictory or superfluous, but once in a while, a real gem of an idea pokes through.
