Design (Not Just Art) on the New Unified Communications Page
A friend of mine was making a point the other day about the difference between art and design.Paraphrased, it goes something like this:
- Art is when you make something interesting, touching, inspiring or beautiful.
- Design, on the other hand, is about solving problems. Design can also be inspiring or even beautiful. But the primary job of design is to make things work. (That’s why it worries me a bit when I hear people say “we’re going to design a better user experience” and then proceed to talk solely about icons and graphics, which are often more art than design.)
- Series comparisons make it easier for you to research and learn about products
- Critical decision-making tools like model comparisons and datasheets are more accessible
- New Series and New Models designations spotlight recent product introductions
- The full listing of products now has its own tab, and has been reformatted for easier reading.
- A related solutions tab organizes solution-related links that were previously, well, scattered
- Extended descriptions, featured case studies, and resources links collect useful backrgound information
- Top-of-page “heroes” and featured content areas across the pages give you lots of background on the different products, without getting in the way
