Quotes from the Episode:


“When people interact with websites they expect excellent user experience, if you fail to satisfy their needs they’ll simply move to your competition which might just be a click away. That’s why with every design decision you should think what’s best for the visitor and try to make the experience as pleasant as possible.” [00:16:04]


“The design needs to inform what we are trying to help people accomplish beside just brag or look good.” [00:17:00]


“A website is a good anchor piece to revisit that can then inform the rest of the stuff that comes out of it because it is the biggest digital presence you will have.” [00:29:46]
