Is it just me or do Mule's sites all feel like they're from the same template or something? Mark Monteiro does a lot of thought leadership so I expected the work to be more memorable.
Yeah this looks very similar to their own website.
What would you do differently? What in your view isn't working and why?
That is an extremely bland website.
I am curious on the % of users that reach the bottom.
Plus we aren't forgot the old XKCD cartoon...
Looks like a cheap af template.
For those being critical of the design, it's very easy to critique without context. However, you don't know what Mule's research yielded, you don't know what constraints they were faced with, you don't know what the University wanted, you really don't know any of the details that went into the design direction of the website.
While you're entitled to your opinion, I do think it is unfair to simply throw around derogatory comments because it doesn't appeal to your own tastes.
Personally, I find it to be extremely clean and easy to use, which in my opinion is exactly what a University website should be given the vast demographics it caters to.
