Frustrating User Experience

The homepage loads quickly and is organized according to conventional web practices. The main navigation menu is place directly below the logo and spreads horizontally across the top of the page. The rest of the page is broken up into sections that contain supporting images and text. The overall look of the homepage was inviting and intriguing due to the success of limited text, good use of color, consumable information and appealing graphics, that all worked together to create an sci fi – mood/theme and seduce users to further explore the content of the site. Unfortunately, immediately after clicking on a link, a user will experience complete confusion and frustration, due to the drastic unexpected changes in the website’s layout. Overall, after realizing that there are no corresponding pages even similar to the promising look of the homepage, and recognizing that the website lacks any sense of uniformity, this website will lose yet again another potential space enthusiasts for committing the crime of bad design.Screen Shot 2013-02-02 at 8.29.47 PM

    I feel like I was looking though different websites as I clicked different likes in the main nav. The “NewsCenter” is not designed like the rest of the pages. On the homepage it is appropriately flashy and inviting, but the rest seems bland in comparison. The nav bar isn’t even designed the same in the different pages!

    I don’t think the look of either of the sites correspond to the central aesthetic for NASA or the Hubble program.
    The top website looks more childish than anything, and the bottom one looks like it was designed in the dotcom era
