S.Korean checking in a very old thread
I guess you are right, Jeff: We do seem to blindly link ‘more functionality’ opposed to simplistic designs.
Take www.naver.com, a very popular site for an example. Very cluttered compared to Google, but everything most people needs are on the top section of the site. (hell, I didn’t notice the bottom part until now!)
Comparing this to Yahoo! (I assume that Yahoo is popular in the States), it just seems to me that somehow Yahoo! is MORE cluttered.
So yeah, I guess our design concepts differ from you guys
We probably just like having much unimportant content to look at…
