Designing for print media versus designing for the web can be a completely different experience. Although desktop publishing and Web design are similar in origin, they aren’t the same. Design is often viewed as a more rigorous form of art, or art with a clearly defined purpose. Some print and web pages look like the backside of a rental agreement, while others seem designed to confuse the readers or test their reactions to optical illusions. One of the simpler ways of judging a page design is to ask, Does it say “read me” when you look at it? The ultimate aim of the layout, which for pages in print or on the web is quite simple: Draw the reader in so you can deliver your message.
