If content is king, then design (website) is the castle. Good web design for businesses not only has the content to peak audience interest for whatever product or service you’re selling, but also has an intuitive UI to encourage sales.
Lots of designers think they have brilliant ideas for designing UI, but without real world user experience telling them what their audience needs. How can one know if their design is the best? As Steve Jobs once said: “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works”. And some of these sites don’t work as they should.
The state of some government websites is so bad that even hackers feel they shouldn’t be allowed any space on the web, and have either defaced them or taken them down completely.
What other Zimbabwean website do you think should be on our worst list? Some other official government websites should be on this list, but we decided to feature only a few because we think we are hitting them below the belt.
