WEBSITE LAYOUT

The role website layouts play in impacting the quality of the design is clear to every professional designer. A website’s pattern and structure are the very first things we think about in the earliest stages of our design process. After identifying the goals of our site and the elements it should include, page layout design effectively begins the first stage of putting ideas on paper. 

It is only once you decide upon the anatomy of your website and how to map out your content accordingly, that you can then build lo-fi wireframes and explore what works best for what you’re looking to achieve. 

Is it a heavily-visual homepage that will work best for your content strategy, in the form of a full-screen media layout? Or does it make more sense to distribute the information hierarchy in a more even format, using a split-screen layout to display several sections of content with mutual significance? 

This is exactly what we’re about to explore, by looking at our nine hand-picked examples of the website layout designs most frequently used by professional designers. 

Evaluating these examples will help us understand the role each layout-type serves in building website content that actualizes our design goals. Ultimately, knowing when and how to leverage the right layout for our sites — will equip and empower us to build more robust design strategies and craft websites that are even more beautiful.
