Web Design Terms.
Great communicators recognize the power of simple statements. They realize that important ideas don’t have to be dressed up in a fancy language.
Designers, often use terms that imply we’re part of some secret club. It’s as if we’re saying, “We can speak in a code that those non-designers can’t understand.”
Business-speak, corporate-ese, MBA-speak. design jargon can have many names, the language of the design and corporate world rarely makes rewarding reading. Why do businesses say things like: 'Creating synergistic solutions to their mutual challenges'?
Let’s put an end to Business-speak. I have provided some Business-speak examples below, in case you ever have to communicate with a designer or business person who tries to out wit you with some Business-speak.
