While designing We Are not Freelancers we had one goal in mind. Our goal was to get featured on as many web galleries as possible.
This isn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination, we had never achieved it before so why would we do it now? From start to finish this blog took about 8 days to create but I think of those 8 days I must have spent every hour of them on the design.
Why did we want to be featured on galleries?
I tweet a lot and thanks to TweetDeck I am kept up to date with what the people I follow are doing. By watching them I have tried to pick up as many good aspects of their habits and tried to combine it to market our blogs.
I believe that these methods are working well and would like to share them with you:
I am a padding addict. I love padding so much that if I turned into a pillow I would probably be happy.
No seriously. I consider margins and padding to be more critical than 960.gs or the 10px method. You can have the best grid based layout but if your padding / margins are out it will not look good.
I usually spend more time making sure that all my padding is correct than if my site fits perfectly within a grid. It facilitates relevant information, separation and more importantly, white space management.
Don’t like grids? Try our ten pixel method.
There may be a proper name for this somewhere out there and it may be commonly known. If so we apologize if this has been repeated.
Grids are making a comeback and are becoming quite common in the web world. If your site doesn’t follow a set structure in its layout it may seem disjointed and difficult to navigate, read or look at.
