  4. 4. White space in web designSource: Webmastering BASICS by Knowlton, Hunt and Bates; Thomson CourseTechnology.White space is the blank area on a Web page. There are two types of whitespace, active and passive. Active white space is blank areas on a web page thatare placed on purpose. lt is what separates content and is a design element ofits own. Sometimes the use of white space can be the difference between agreat Web site and a mediocre one. Passive white space is the blank areas on aweb page that are a result of incomplete or mismatched shapes.white spaceite spaceWhite space can be used to determine the proximity of content. By placing anappropriate amount of white space around an element or a group of elements,you can effectively define a close proximity. By applying appropriate whitespace, your web page will be much easier to read and more pleasing to look at.
  5. 5. wwwwBelow are features that can make a web rlesign lookunprofessional. These are not just my personal opinions, butare ideas I have collected from speaking io groups aroundthe country. Examples of many of these fr:atures and moredetailed explanations of the problems ancl solutions are in mybook, The Non-Designers Web Book, written with JohnTollett.Backgroundso Default gray colorr Color combinations of text and backgrourd that make the text hardto readr Busy, distracting backgrounds that make the text hard to readTexto Text that is too small to readr Text crowding against the left edgeo Text that stretches all the way across the pageo Centered type over flush left body copye Paragraphs of type in all capsr Paragraphs of type in boldo Paragraphs of type in italico Paragraphs of type in all caps, bold, and italic all at oncee Underlined text that is not a linkLinkso Default blue linkso Blue link borders around graphicse Links that are not clear about where they will take youo Links in body copy that distract readers aird lead them off toremote,useless pageso Text links that are not underlined so you clont know they are linkso Dead links (links that dont work anymore)Graphicsr Large graphic files that take forever to loedo Meaningless or useless graphicsr Thumbnail images that are nearly as larg{l as the full-sized imagesthey link tor Graphics with no alt labels :e Missing graphics, especially missing graphics with no alt labelso Graphics that dont fit on the screen (assuming a screen of 640x460pixels)

  7. 7. Web Site Design Elements and ConceptsHome Page: The homepage makes the first impression.The "Wow" or "Splash" must grab the attention of your audience.Let your viewers know what they can expect on the site (the "big picture" up front).Alignment: A page that is aligned well appears clean, organized, and its purpose is clear"o The items on a page must be consistently aligned. This doesnt mean thateverything is aligned along the same edge.o Center alignment has an invisible line down the middle, but the edges have nodefinition. (Can be used for certain effects).o Buttons and links should line up horizontally.Colors: Choose a color theme and work within a range of colors.. Use colors to coordinate, compliment, and show contrast.o If your ethnic group is associated with particular colors, consider using them.r Cornbine colors to convey emotions or attract attention.o Make sure the text shows up well on the background color.Size and Depth: Place graphics and lines, or create layers to prioritize information.o Large graphic objects and thicl< lines appear to advance toward the viewer.r Smaller objects and thinner lines appear to recede.Proximitv: Spacing arrangements provide visual clues as to the meaning andimportance of different pieces of information.. Every item should be on the page for a reasonc All elements should have a visual connection with another element on the page.o When two items are close they appear to belong together.o Group items together that belong together.o Visual spaces create a hierarchy of groups of information.o Use active white space to display imagery and set to off various groups ofelements.Contrast: Contrast guides your eyes around the page.o Create a hierarchy of information.o Contrast items of the most importance-a focal point.o Contrast must be strong. Make elements very different, not almost the same.o Things with no importance dont belong on the page.Consistency: Placement of navigation or graphic elements tie the page together.o Each page in the Web site should look like it belongs to the same site or concept.o Repetition of elements creates consistency.o A consistent navigation system helps visitors get the most out of your site.o Colors, style, illustrations, format, layout, typography, etc. can unifr the site.
  8. 8. r Personality of the page must be evident, such as funny, technical, hip, formal, etc.Deciding on animation or no animation, also, plays a major role in pagepersonality.$pelling & Grammar: Bad spelling eurd grammar can destroy the professional effect ofa site.Getting Started: (See page 32 in your HTML book).o Start with a good simple Web site plan.r Make a rough list of the information to be includedm the site.r Organizethe inforrnation to serve as the basic structure of the site.o Later you may rnake changes such as combining several topics into one, orsplitting topics into smaller, separate ones.r Generally speaking, each main item in your outline will be a different pageonyour web site layout.r Sketch out a rough diagram of the site with boxes, or you oan use post it notes, tomove ideas around easily.Multimedia: Some viewers will need to download specific plug-ins for viewing sometypes of multimedia.
