Web Design Steps

should be tailored to the preferences of your audience. The type of site content (reading
level, amount of animation, etc.) should be appropriate for your chosen audience.
- Determine the Goals of the Site
Some common goals of web sites are: to be informative,
to create a personal home page, to establish a corporate web presence, and to do business in e-commerce.

The site map is sometimes called a
Storyboard. Common organizational structures for Web sites are: heirarchical, linear, and random.
- Sketch a Tentative Page Layout

Content Page to be consistent, with easy navigation.
