Examples of an Efficient Site & an Inefficient Site

MDU119: Blog 2

An efficient website is a key to gaining revenue over the course of the business being open. here are two examples of an efficient site and an inefficient one.

This is the link to the efficient site: http://www.thenorthface.com.br/ (This one is in a different language but if you are using google chrome it will ask if you want it to translate. If you can read Portuguese then no need to but I can’t.)

And this is the link to the inefficient site: https://www.shannons.com.au/club/

With the efficient site the layout is simple but keep the design principles in play still but the navigation menu can be confusing at first. After looking at it, you can tell that it is setup so that the shop products and categories are seen first. Then clicking the categories/product you want to view.

The inefficient site has a poor layout and has no design principles incorporated in the website. Even with a simple navigation my eye still doesn’t know where to look at first and what to search for with in the site.

With the efficient site and inefficient site both taught me that keeping the design principles and a simple navigation is important for anyone of all ages to use without being confused to the point of leaving and never coming back to the site ever again.

There are many more pros and cons to each site that have not been mentioned in this blog post. I would love to hear what you think about the sites that I have mentioned and any others that you think are great or not.

  1. I agree that your efficient cite has a very good layout. It looks good with the three colours as colour scheme, and it is easily accessible and navigated around. Whereas by first look at the inefficient cite, the movie imagery behind the car and person was too distracting and unappealing. I agree with your choices there, and very good evaluation behind why it was good or bad. 🙂


  2. You did such a great job in explaining the differences between the two sites whether one is efficient and the other is inefficient. I really find that u focused on one aspect which was navigation in a broad sense and detailed that area onward this was very well-executed. However, I really liked you to explain those pros and cons you mentioned. Great job overall.
