Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

Fundamental Design Considerations for Creating Web Pages is a graduate review paper that was written to increase awareness of the proper use of design principles and web page layout in designing school web sites. This was written in response to the increase of poorly designed web sites that are difficult to read and understand because of the use of improper text and text size, distracting backgrounds, and color combinations that do not match. Information is given as to what design considerations and background information is needed to create a web site. The use of tables and frames is compared along with the four design elements that consist of proximity, repetition, contrast, and alignment. The reader is also given information about readability and navigation within a web site.
