Life’s funny. I was just talking to some peeps yesterday about the wisdom of getting ample hosting plans for websites and today Proton’s website is down because of the surge in traffic from their latest advertising campaign, the Proton MPV Naming Contest.
I guess it’s better to have too much bandwidth than too little (who you gonna call: Media Temple).
Now, their corporate site is just a bunch of text-links. Sorta like Jakob Neilsen’s website. Now, that’s funny.
Leo Burnett’s a great agency but their website redesign is a puzzle to me.
Apart from adding a few more steps, more copy to read and a greater perception of depth, I don’t really see any difference in terms of accessibility or functionality, compared to the old site.
There’s tons of hidden content. There’s not enough call to action. And there’s not much tactile control; trying to guide your pointer across the screen and choosing stuff to click on is like navigating in bullet-time. The most painful thing about the site, though, is that it forces you to learn how to use it, all over again.
On the bright side, that logo does look real spiffy in 3D. Heh.
