Bad Design Example: BDO.com.ph

The ‘Quick Links’ section of the BDO website features icons that a.) hardly represent the function they’re supposed to represent, and so b.) you need to mouse over them each time for ‘hints’ to appear to know what they are for. I often need to check the time or date of a deposit or withdrawal and the transactions icon is one of those – and to prove how confusing they are I’ve already forgotten which one even if I just clicked it a minute ago.


On the plus side however, clicking the gear link (again another confusing icon btw), will allow you to customize the icons that appear on the sidebar so I can put the My Transactions button at the top left most area.

bWhich would’ve been unnecessary of course, if they had used easier to understand icons or even just use words in the first place.
