New York Website Design Firm Says That Button Proximity Is Essential For Website Success

Leading Manhattan website development and website design firm explains how placing buttons close to the objects that they relate to is a must in order to achieve website design success.

According to Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a leading New York website design firm with clients throughout the United States, graphical user interface (GUI) elements, such as buttons, must be placed close to the objects that they relate to.

“It is important to ensure that users know to perform certain actions by putting checkboxes and other graphic elements close to the items that they are connected to,” says Crisafi. “Keeping a watchful eye on GUI elements will be beneficial for those that seek to increase website conversion rates through the improvement of a website’s usability.”

According to Crisafi, one of the oldest principles of human-computer interaction is that objects which are close together on the screen are almost always seen by the user as being related.

"Quite frequently, we see clients whose original website designers failed to keep this simple, yet important idea in mind,” says Crisafi. “As a result, users have overlooked many features because the sites violate the closeness rule.”

Crisafi says that the overall usability of a website is of the utmost importance to visitors, which is why adhering to such rules is necessary. A recent report says that overall website usability is improving but, he says, there is still a lot of work to be done.
