I have decided to start designing the layout of page starting from a main content article page, and then work back to home page, incorporating the same structure consistently across all pages.

I am starting with an article page, because this is where I feel that clear navigation is most important and so most of the design considerations should be made here rather than the home page,

Sketch #1:


  • Logo situated in top left corner
  • Search box in top right corner (no longer included in content links)
  • Non-content related areas moved out of main content link area, and into a standard header navigation bar
  • Core content subjects showing in sidebar area, as Victorian themed app-style icons
  • Main content (article) displayed on sheet with ‘filing-style’ tab at top (showing subject category)
  • Footer – with extensive links to content, and sitemap
