Simplifying Page Design
(Page 1 of 4 )
When you look at your Web pages, what do you see? Is your design streamlined, simple and cohesive? Can you easily find all the different features offered on your site? If you find that youíre more confused than impressed by your own pages, itís time to think about simplifying page design for your space on the Web.
The main part of any page is, of course, the content. Usually, the content of a page is placed front and center, right in the middle.
Just donít forget to include your navigation, which might take up the right-hand column or top toolbar -- or both.
Oh, and youíll want to include any feeds, comments links or other extras you have to go with your content.
You canít leave out the images and/or video, either.
And you have to put some ads on the page; thatís how you earn revenue for all your hard work.
By the time youíre done, you may just have a big jumbleÖinstead of a Web page. Learn ways you can start simplifying page design, and create Web pages that are a lot less work.
Simplifying the Elements
When you have a lot of elements to put on a single Web page, getting everything to fit into an attractive pattern can seem quite overwhelming, even nigh impossible. Thereís so much to place, so much room for error, so many things you donít want to miss! Itís easy to start to get ahead of yourself and make mistakes. Donít try to take on the whole project at once. Start simplifying page design by first thinking about the basic elements you want to include on the page.
For the most part, your pages will be made up of certain elements: content, navigation and advertising. Within this framework you may include other links and elements, such as graphic images, headers and content extras like images and video. Get a basic idea of what your pages need to have, keep it simple, and work your way into detailed design decisions from there.
