First impression

It only takes a few seconds for office furniture in Auckland to create an impression. The attention of a user can be captured by the colorful slideshow right under the navigation menu. The slider presents the images of the product in an appealing way so that the user will be encouraged to continue scrolling down the page. However, the issue with web design is the abundance of information presented that can easily confuse or overwhelm the user. A user who is in hurry to delve deeper on what the page offers can be discouraged with the difficulty of reading small texts.

Navigation

Navigation is simple and consistent without the overwhelming the user with lots of choices. The sub-pages also follow the same navigation format and behave the same way to allow the user to find more information regarding office furniture. Because of consistency of navigation, the user always knows where he is. Language is user friendly, which the user can easily understand. The only way for a web design to break from the conventional navigation menu is the possibility for a better or more effective navigation menu that will encourage interaction from a user.

Content

There is no question about the amount of information provided to the user. In fact, its abundance makes the user overwhelmed. Web design of the homepage should have focused on information that is more important to users. The rest of the information like the delivery and assembly options that are equally important to the user can be placed in the sub-pages that are easily accessible through the navigation menu. On the other hand, text does not contain any typographical and grammatical errors. However, users of the site are not there to critique text because it is not a thesis or school report.

The images are clear and colourful particularly those chosen for the slideshow. Meanwhile, since most users are impatient, the amount of information presented on the homepage may be able to satisfy their requirements. Even if they do not click on an item in the navigation bar, the information provided in the homepage of office furniture in Auckland is more than adequate enough for a confident purchasing decision.
