Stay at the Top

Design sites that engage immediately

When you are designing a web page, place most of your design elements at the top. It makes the first impression so much more flattering. This can make it harder to design, especially if you design print more often, but this tip will really help out in the long run. Web pages need to be built to scale. This really means you need to stay away from putting critical design elements at the bottom of the page. There are a few reasons to stay away from the bottom.

  • 1. Content may push the element off the screen, leaving it invisible to surfers.
  • 2. You don't know surfers resolution. If they have a small resolution the may have to scroll to see your element.
  • 3. If your design can't scale, the only option is to place div's with overflows and that means dueling scrollbars, and nobody likes that.
