Social Media Breakfast Ottawa 23 featured Martin Gomez, Creative Director at San Francisco’s Sparkart (but he works from Ottawa). His bio says he has created branding and websites for clients including The Killers, Carrie Underwood, Bon Jovi, Snoop Dogg and Linkin Park and teaches Design for Interactive Media and Business of Graphic Design at Ottawa’s Algonquin College.
Gomez shared insights on simple, user-friendly design in general, and web site design in particular, including the three things users really want:
1) Don’t make me think.
2) Don’t waste my time.
3) Show me what to do.
