What is the 8 point Website Analysis
 
1.) Precedence (Guiding the Eye)
Good Web design, perhaps even more than other type of design, is about information. One of the biggest tools in your arsenal to do this is precedence. When navigating a good design, the user should be led around the screen by the designer. I call this precedence, and it’s about how much visual weight different parts of your design have.
 
2.) Spacing
In Web design there are three aspects of space that you should be considering:
Line Spacing - the space between the lines directly affects how readable it appears
Padding - Generally speaking text should never touch other elements.
White Space - White space is used to give balance, proportion and contrast to a page.
 
3.) Navigation
One of the most frustrating experiences you can have on a Web site is being unable to figure out where to go or where you are. I’d like to think that for most Web designers, navigation is a concept we’ve managed to master, but I still find some pretty bad examples out there.
 
4.) Typography
Text is the most common element of design, so it’s not surprising that a lot of thought has gone into it. It’s important to consider things like:
Font Choices - Different types of fonts say different things about a design
Font sizes - Years ago it was trendy to have really small text. Happily, people have started to realize that text is meant to be read.
Spacing - As discussed above, spacing between lines and away from other objects is important to consider.
Line Length - There is no hard and fast rule, but generally your lines of text shouldn’t be too long.
Paragraphing - stick to left-aligned unless you happen to have a magic body of text that happens to space out perfectly.
 
5.) Usability
Web design ain’t just about pretty pictures. With so much information and interaction to be effected on a Web site, it’s important that you, provide for it all. That means making your Web site design usable.
 
6.) Alignment
Keeping things lined up is as important in Web design as it is in print design. That’s not to say that everything should be in a straight line, but rather that you should go through and try to keep things consistently placed on a page. Aligning makes your design more ordered and digestible, as well as making it seem more polished.
 
7.) Clarity (Sharpness)
Keeping your design crisp and sharp is super important in Web design. And when it comes to clarity, it’s all about the pixels.
 
8.) Consistency
Consistency means making everything match. Heading sizes, font choices, coloring, button styles, spacing, design elements, illustration styles, photo choices, etc. Everything should be themed to make your design coherent between pages and on the same page.
