What are the basic design elements?

Eye-tracking studies have shown that users expect some elements to be in a specific place on the page. Follow the web conventions and users will understand your site quickly.

Make sure your template provides the following areas and make sure they appear on the same place on every page:

  1. Page header
  2. Content area
  3. Scan column (left, right or both)
  4. Page footer
Mock-up following web conventions
