Jen Simmons has a compelling talk (video) where she calls out web design as being far too dominated by the HEADER CONTENT SIDEBAR FOOTER pattern we’re all too familiar with. Print design, despite so often being dubbed “dead” or in massive decline by those of us in web design, still excels in quality and variety of layout.
Certainly we can learn from print design on the web, yeah?
Some interesting ideas for web page layouts, with good examples. I seem to recall this being coined as “lumpy” design at some point, although I could of imagined that.
