After blogging came into picture the news sites and other huge content oriented sites got a tough time to market or project their content for more readability and make the most of the top content available to the readers.
Before the news sites were simple and easy to read, but now its became a challenge for the news or huge content oriented sites to display more categorized top content in one single home page like having category wise new articles, top articles, photos, videos, forums, recent comments or activities and most important not to forget social widgets like bookmarking buttons, facebook, google friendconnect widgets etc.
Its really a tough task to achieve the above. Here are the few aspects which needs to be considered before we come up with a proper design:
- Good Color Schemes – Should be more relax-able
- Grid Based Layout – A proper and calculated alignment of the content
- Typography – Matters a lot
- Categories as headings – for differentiating the various categorized content
- Pictures or Photos – Well aligned pictures
- Line Space – Most important for a readable paragraph
- Margins – Breathing Space matters a lot for busy sites
- Light borders – for differentiating the sections
- Bulleted or List Items of Titles etc.
- and most important not to forget Readability
