Planning to build a website

We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial. We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!

Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.

Words

Pictures

Purpose

What job will this site have?

  • sell stuff?
  • build a community?
  • documentation?
  • record an event?


Audience

Who will visit the website?

  • Personas
  • Demographics
  • Language / Geography
  • Devices / Browsers


Content

Getting the information architecture right from the start is important.

  • Content Types
  • Navigation
  • Search
  • Taxonomy

This is the stuff your website is all about. Here's some resources on creating compelling content for the web.
