Questions

Q1.

One reading said people can pages in a Z pattern. This is true of reading print, but not the web. Web scan is an F. (Nielsen's alertbox is a good source of design for web.....although many people disagree with his points as being too "you MUST do this")

How do perception, culture, and rhetoric impact overall page design? How can you use sequence, hierarchy, connection, and balance to create visual systems of meaning within page design? And how do they relate to the cultural and rhetorical impact?

 

Thoughts to ponder
