Project 9. Designing a Home Page > Creating the Design

Creating the Design

As is usually the case, we'll start at the top of the document and work our way down. After getting the masthead put together, we'll move on to the main content and sidebar. This will let us effectively divide the layout into two zones: “masthead” and “the rest of the page.” While it's true that the main content and sidebar will be placed in relation to each other, they'll both be placed in relation to the masthead, so in many ways it is the most important aspect of the design.

Two Images Behind the Masthead

Since the masthead is a key portion of the design, it stands to reason that it should look pretty. It's hard to create beautiful Web design without images, and in this case, we have two images to use in the masthead. They're shown in Figure 9.3.
