Web Design Planning

Web Design

Planning:

-When planning your website, you should have a brief idea of the tabs and pages that you will create for your website. These should all have notes referring to where every new page will be stored and what content will be displayed on each. This helps the organisation later on when writing the html/css code.

-A colour scheme should be outlined based on research of other websites. This research should take into account the purpose of your site and that of the one being compared. Similar websites are good at comparison, but useless if your website is relaxed and your comparison website is professional.

-Page layouts should be quickly sketched deciding the location of the main features on your website. These should either then be used later or developed upon. These layouts allow for sophisticated design rather than a mash up of colliding ideas that don’t work as well together as they could have if you’d planned them beforehand.

Development:

-During the development of your website it’s important to keep in mind the purpose – if you lose mind of the purpose the design, as said before, can become messy and make way for flaw and loop holes that haven’t been written correctly. The html itself should be written to the accepted standard so it can be understood by everyone.

-While developing, straying too far from your initial plan, unlike others, might not always show development. The plan is important because many things can come into play at once while writing the html which can become confusing. The plan keeps you on track in web design, unlike plans in other topics such as graphics design which are mere outlines and suggestions.

Evaluation:

-During evaluation, comparison to the websites you looked at initially as well as initial ideas based on the information you found can show how you expanded on the information found and how your website fits in context with others of the likes. This shows an understanding of the websites purpose and how that comes into play with the user interface.

-Evaluation of your website could also consist of looking into the storage of your files used on your website and the suitability of their names, the quality of the written html/css – if it all makes sense to you and to others.
