5 Things to think about when designing for my parents


Here’s a taste of what Jack Zerby’s parents think about website design. Folks designing webites should take note.

#1 Ditch the Intros
“I hate all that stuff moving around. I just want to know where the buy now button is”

 #2 Big enough buttons
“If I ain’t seein it, I ain’t clickin it”

#3 Wicked web forms
“Where did it go JACK? They deleted my credit card”

#4 Worth the wait
“JACK, what did you do to the internet! It’s broken!”

#5Ahhh, simplicity
“Holy crap! This is harder then gettin a pig in a bathtub.”
