Robin Good's curator insight, January 4, 2013 12:13 PM



Jessica Meher at Hubspot has put together a really valuable collection of 15 home page designs to look up to. While the selected designs may not represent your ideal taste or style, they all integrate some of the key critical elements for a home page to be successful. Namely:


a. States clearly what the site is about, what problems it offers, who does it talk to


b. Uses visuals, possibly representing the object/focus of our interest or some "humans" that are doing what we are interested into


c. Provides info bursts that detail what the site is about, what it offers and more.


Excellent choices. 8/10

On n'a pas de seconde chance de faire une bonne première impression...

D'où l'importance de la page d'accueil pour un site de marque.

Celle-ci doit :

- exprimer clairement, dans le langage de sa cible, l'utilité du site : qui on est, ce que l'on fait, ce que l'on peut faire pour vous, visiteur

- faire rester les visiteurs et les diriger dans le tunnel de conversion : une ergonomie épurée et une navigabilité optimisée grâce à des boutons d'actions

- changer régulièrement soit grâce à de l'A/B testing, soit grâce à des contenus dynamiques

Design Your Web Site Mock-Up With One of These Free WireFraming Tools

Design Your Web Site Mock-Up With One of These Free WireFraming Tools | Web Design & Development | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for free tools that can help you draft the design of your web site or application, look no further as this is a good collection providing ten wrireframing alternatives.


Definition of Wireframe:
A wireframe is a visual illustration of one Web page. It is meant to show all of the items that are included on a particular page, without defining the look and feel (or graphic design).


It’s simply meant to illustrate the features, content and links that need to appear on a page so that your design team can mock up a visual interface and your programmers understand the page features and how they are supposed to work.

Responsive Web Design: Ultimate List of Advantages and Disadvantages.

Responsive Web Design: Ultimate List of Advantages and Disadvantages. | Web Design & Development | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are considering adopting a web design responsive solution to make your web site fully compatible with any type of screen and mobile device, you may want to give a good read to this excellent guide by Slavik Volinskion SEOMoz, which highlights all pros and cons of adopting this approach. Both from a design-usability and from a SEO viewpoint.

SEOMoz: "Responsive design is not a one-size-fits-all solution to mobile.


According to the author of the Responsive Web Design book, Ethan Marcotte:

"But most importantly, responsive web design isn't intended to serve as a replacement for mobile web sites. [...] And as a development strategy, it's meant to be evaluated to see if it meets the needs of the project you're working on."


Must-read: 8/10
