Chapter 24. Effective Page Design > Understanding Site Architecture

Understanding Site Architecture

Designing a Web page to be effective means understanding a bit about the structure of hypermedia documents, taking the time to plan your page—and how it will interact with other pages on the site—as well as learning at least the basic principles of User Interface Design (UID).

The structure of hypermedia directly relates to the effectiveness of your page because by understanding the underlying, interactive technology available to you, you can make choices for your site and for your audience—eliminating potential problems on either end. Similarly, planning plays a big role in making sure you know what you want and need before you start to work. You spend less time and, in a professional situation, less money by ensuring that your work is well thought out in advance.
