I like it when I happen upon a site where I don't even have to think about where to look for what I need.
I don't have any design experience, but I did take part in a usability study for backcountry.com and liked having a say in the design process as a user of the site (the gift certificate didn't hurt either).
I don't like it when I have to search for the same bit of information across several companies and it is hidden different non-intuitive spots on their website. To me it seems like it is just for the sake of being different and not for any improved user experience.
I"m new to the technology field, and I look up and learn new words every day.
