Drew McLellan 10 December 2009 @Nils – I agree that creativity shouldn’t be at the expense of usability, however, usability is as much of the design process. It’s fine to break a convention, provided that whatever you’ve done instead is clear to the user. Do links need to be blue and underlined? No. Do links need to be clear and distinct from regular text to invite interaction? Yes. How that’s achieved is up for grabs.
