If you’re used to print FORGET what you know
The Difference between web and print design:
DimensionalityPrint design is 2-dimensional
Web design is 1-dimensional and N-dimensional.
it’s just a matter of turning pages
Hypertext navigation is a major component of web design, requiring decisions like:
- Appearance of links
- Making it easy for user to move around the site(telling them how to get somewhere and wher e a link will take them)
- Visualization of the user's location
- IA- Information Architecture
Response Time, Resolution, and Canvas Size
- Doesn’t need to be fast. It’s on paper (duh)
- Pictures need to be in extremely high resoloution.
- Has to be large enough for people to see without straining themselves.
- Bandwidth fast enough to download a Web page
- screen resolution sharp enough to render type crisply
- huge screens the size of a newspaper spread
