I can't believe they recommended adding a line break (br tag) into text...on the web...that reflows...based on factors sometimes outside the control of the web developer/designer. Especially since there is a widows and orhpans CSS property that fixes the problem.
Gadzook: the decoration or adornment which connects the two letters of a ligature
For a company who claims to be a world leader in user experience, their website is surprisingly mediocre.
What specifically do you think is lacking in their website?
Well done typography. More specifically, the typographic color is far, far too dark.
Everything is fine...but that's just it. The website is just fine. For a "world leader" in user experience you'd think they'd be knocking it out of the park or doing something unique that shows their expertise. Instead they have a website that looks like a stock wordpress template. There's essentially no heirarchy on the page, typography is all over the place, they're not leading the user to a specific action...the whole thing is just...bleh.
Is this what N/N is doing these days?
Is that a problem?
No, not at all in general.
But for the world leader in user experience... seems rather basic...
