Choosing the Right Layout Type for Your Page

As you’ve seen throughout this chapter, each design type has its own benefits and challenges. Following are some reasons to choose each of the three design types we’ve covered. This list certainly isn’t comprehensive, since of course I can’t anticipate every type of site you’ll want to make or audience demographic you’ll have to design for. Use your judgment to decide what will work best for your project, using this as a starting point.

I want to emphasize that not only is there no one right way to lay out every type of site, but that even if you do pick a layout type that is really well suited to your particular audience’s needs and fits with your content and design, there are still going to be some users who will dislike it. The well-known CSS developer Eric Meyer sums this up humorously in his article “Making Popular Layout Decisions” at www.thinkvitamin.com/features/design/making-popular-layout-decisions.
