Design for websites

Designing for websites is a lot different to designing for the print world. In website design you have to consider how a user might interact with the website via a navigation system and you can utilize animation to draw attention to certain content. Unlike designing for a magazine you can have different page lengths and you can open and close content within a page giving the design a lot more flexibility.

Design + Technology = Functionality
When producing designs for websites it is important to consider the technology that you can use. Through Javascript and other technologies you can enable rollover buttons and many effects that can aid a user’s journey through your website. Through CMS’s or database driven websites you can help deliver content in an easy and consistent style, while at the same time making the website easy to update. New technologies are constantly being developed, although it is good to use technologies that are available to everybody (i.e there is little point in using a video plugin that only 3% of your audience have on their computers).
