Kalahari.net Kalahari.net is SA's largest online retailer. News from them is that they've embraced a new web design methodology to improve the e-commerce experience on their site. The new look site is designed around user experience and the process is being spearheaded by Rian van der Merwe, an eBay veteran in User Experience Design previously based out of San Francisco, who is the newly appointed Head of Product & Design for kalahari.net. User-Centred Design, which is something all web design should incorporate, is gaining traction globally because it has proven time and again that it makes websites easier to use, which of course makes customers happy. Van der Merwe says, "Simply put, we’re optimising our service around the needs and goals of shoppers, instead of forcing them to change their behaviour to accommodate us.” The benefits of user-centred design for kalahari.net are that it will be simpler to see, browse, find and buy from their extensive catalogue of approximately 13 million products. Initial changes to the design include new navigation, cleaner pages, and faster page loading. Any Questions? 10and5 will be interviewing Rian van der Merwe soon and instead of making it a Q+A by us, we'd like to interview him on behalf of the Between 10and5 community. If there is anything you'd like to know about user-centred design, web design in general, kalahari.net or Rian himself, let us know. Leave your questions for Rian in the comments section below and we'll put together an interview - by all of you.
