Site design is not just Photoshop

In order to try and explain to a design team that I’m working with that the site-design-by-photoshop approach is not delivering, I have created the mindmap below on Mindmeister. It’s supposed to illustrate all the things you should think about when designing a web UI, from the look-and-feel, through to how the page structure can affect analytics, SEO etc. I’ve made the map public, as I think it could become a useful tool for people when trying to explain to extended team members why, for instance, putting the entire site on a single page with lots of AJAX isn’t a good idea, however nice it looks.

URL is - http://www.mindmeister.com/45020006/user-interface – and it’s editable by anyone.
