Web Page Design Critical Elements for a Well Designed Web Page
The key to creating outstanding web pages is a specialized kind of planning called design.
Design is divided into three parts: Information Design Interaction Design Presentation Design
Information Design Message: What information do you wish to share? Audience: Whom do you wish to share your message with? Purpose: How and why do you want to share your message with this audience? Background: What does your intended audience already know about the subject you are discussing? Structure: How can your message be organized most effectively? Doorways to Design
Interaction Design Organization: How are the graphics, text, and other elements arranged on the page? Navigation: Are there any links or buttons on the home page that make it easy to move to other parts of the Web site? Interactivity: Do you have a chance to interact or to participate in the Web pages in some way? Are you expected to do something with the information on this Web site?
Presentation Design Color scheme: What colors should you use for the background, text, and links on your page? Font selection: What style of letters do you want– simple or fancy, large or small? Graphics selection: What pictures or graphic elements do you want to appear on the page? Multimedia effects: Are there any multimedia motion or sound effects that you wish to include on your page? Arrangement: where on the page should you place your graphics, text, or multimedia effects (layout)?
Order Design is best done in orderfirst, you determine the general information (information design), its purpose, and structure; then you decide how to organize it (interaction design). Only when you have made these decisions do you decide how the Web site should look (presentation design).
