Aesthetics are Vanity, Usability is Sanity

  in  Website Design
OK, the title is slightly provocative because when it comes to website design, it doesn't have to be one (aesthetics) or the other (usability) - it CAN be both. However, looking around the web in 2017, I get the feeling that website designers (due perhaps to the influence of their clients) focus too heavily on aesthetics to the detriment of usability.
