Difficult Designs

Tonight a free advice as a gift to you, dearest reader of this your weblog:

When developing websites, if ever, do always consider the path and methods a difficult design may offer. Do not underestimate your own audience at first, neither your client's audience.

Let your client know that design she needs and wants it won't be realize in two days.

Difficult Designs take time, but they are everlasting.
Consider, for example, when a web search returns top results that include helpful information that the user wants. Is the search engine really doing people the best service?
Would a teacher just tell a student the correct answer if the student did not get it on the first try?
