Below the Fold: Adventures in Choosing your Own Template

Below the Fold: Adventures in Choosing your Own Template | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
Several years ago, when people were still figuring out how the Internet was going to be used with a variety of devices, the term “the Fold” was born. The fold is a term that was borrowed from print advertising to describe the portion of your Internet screen that you can read without doing any scrolling. Obviously, the fold on a large desktop replacement is going to be far bigger than one on an iPhone 6.

Part of the discussion about the fold is if it is a good idea for you to put content or designs below it. One school of thought was that you needed to put your information above the fold because of the “5 second rule” according to Web Design Tutsplus.com. This rule states that you have 5 seconds to grab a reader’s attention. If you do not grab a reader then, you lose them.

The Use of Filters and Transparency Layers in Website Design

The Use of Filters and Transparency Layers in Website Design | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it
It seems that with one trend in website design, designers almost have another trend pushed upon them. This is the case with large background images – using a slide show with a variety of different photographs means that whatever color text you choose it will show up better on some than on others, so the solution has been to place a filter or transparent layer between the image and the text, meaning that the text will show just as clearly on any image.

This design trend does not only apply to photographic background images, some sites use halftones or transparency on solid color backgrounds, and the addition of a very small drop shadow makes white text look extremely crisp and sharp. Here we are showcasing a selection of websites that use this method to keep their text easy to read without compromising the quality of the images.
