Humor in Web Design: Fine Line Between Funny and a Laughing Stock

4.33/5 (3)

"Humor reveals a whole new universe of information processing."

 
 
There might be nothing new or interesting in saying that creativity fuels both humor and design. But is it possible to reverse this equation? Can humor or rather the thought structure and method of humor fuel creative thinking or more specifically design thinking?

Creative thinking is an integral ingredient in the design process. Thus using creative thinking as the bridge one can be led to see an interrelation between the humor thinking and design thinking. However, while creative thinking and humor thinking speak of a non linear/associative process; design thinking is a combination of many modes/structures of thought processes - design thinking is both linear and non-linear depending on the stage of the design process.

Humor is one of the most effective ways of human communication. Jokes and smiles can help avoid confusion and add feeling of comfort to the conversation. However, all people have a different sense of humor. It all depends on the specifics of your own web project and the target audience.
