comment Are there any case studies which provess that Re-design of existing Website helped to get more traffic and business significantly ?
Yes there are case studies (a simple google search will find many) and for both reasons (and more besides), but this question seems rather broad and also more about marketing than user experience specifically? Also 'redesign' is a vague term. It could mean starting from scratch or modifying a shopping cart, or adding new functionality. Is there a particular UX topic you're trying to explore here?

@DA01 This is an interesting question: Could I save printer's ink/toner by changing the font?

@DA01 well there is more font smoothing going on in a serif font, resulting in an overall lighter effect, even if the actual font colour is the same. Plus there may just be less pixels covered.

I am curious to see an actual screenshot of what it looked like before.

@samgak As a side-note: Do you need all the controls displayed all the time. You could have quick access to each type of control (tab style), but only one of them actually active at any one time with the slider or whatever other controls you have for the current effect. That's not to say you can't show what values all the other effects currently have - you just don't need to clutter the screen with all the actual controls at once.

That's also similar to some physical behaviours, for example a hot water shower handle that sticks in a notch or is actually blocked by a pin at a certain temperature and if you want to go further you have to also push a little button in while turning the handle so as to get the hotter water.

That I haven't tested but I believe it could work with a simple well thought out design and clean but clear visual cues.

comment Human Centered Design vs. User Centered Design
There's almost certainly whole different fields of design and development that this answer is touching on and I'm almost certainly using the wrong terminology for some of this :)

comment Human Centered Design vs. User Centered Design
I would make the distinction between there being (or not being) something you could definitively call a touchpoint between the system and a person where the person has a conscious awareness of the interaction. As always things are never always black or white and the middle ground may be more vague. You might design a building or a park or a city for people with social and environmental factors in mind, but the people who live or work there aren't users exactly - they're just - well - being! Also - maybe it depends on scale of interaction - micro and macro interactions if you like.
