Planning And Implementing Website Navigation

The thing that makes navigation difficult to work with in Web design is that it can be so versatile. Navigation can be simple or complex: a few main pages or a multi-level architecture; one set of content for logged-in users and another for logged-out users; and so on. Because navigation can vary so much between websites, there are no set guidelines or how-to’s for organizing navigation.

This should be everyone’s first priority when creating websites, good navigation not only makes the website more useable but also enhances it. Designers and developers need to take more note of how much content a website is going to have and design that in useable and user friendly way.

Technical Web Typography: Guidelines and Techniques

Unfortunately, for every person who is obsessed with even the tiniest details of typography, a dozen or so people seem to be indifferent. It’s a shame; if you’re going to spend time writing something, don’t you want it to look great and be easy to read?

That’s so true! A lot of people also seem to be indifferent to bad design in general, which is a shame because it can help to make an experience so much more pleasurable and easy to use.

Some nice looking websites, however I find that the navigation, etc of some of them can be quite hard and frustrating. Although some look great, they may not necessarily function well for the normal user.

At the House of Type we do a lot of fishing related work, and so Sky’s Guide Service was immediately interesting to me, and my colleagues. Personally I thought it looked great, and functionally was easy to navigate and use.
