Page Layout and Design

  • Web Standards for Publishing Ventures

    After more than a decade's experience and several significant studies about how people read web pages, web designers have developed several tips for good site design. Here are some basic elements you should consider when creating a page.

  • Choosing Colors

    The roots of a successful Web design come from the color choices you make. Color is crucial in creating an optimal user experience. Proper use of colors can even be required under some accessibility guidelines for the visually impaired.

  • Logos

    Logo design is critical for more than just your website.  It will be used on business cards and promotional material, in presentations, in newspaper articles and videos.  You want something that remains recognizable even at a distance or at a small size.
