CGS 2585: Web Site Design Part 1 Page 2 © Dr. Mark Llewellyn Web sites are designed around the needs of its audience. You need to clearly define the audience. Why did they come to your site? What are they looking for? A Web site needs a clear and specific list of purposes. The list should include broad long-term goals as well as specific measurable objectives. A Web site should take advantage of the technologies that help it serve the needs of the audience, including text, images, sound, video, and interactivity. Web Site Design

CGS 2585: Web Site Design Part 1 Page 3 © Dr. Mark Llewellyn Once you know who will be using your site, you need to think about what they will use your site for, and why. Part of the site’s purpose will be determined from the user’s reasons for visiting the site and is thus determined by the audience definition. The rest of the purpose is based on the organization’s reasons for publishing the site. For example, consider the hypothetical Mark’s Bike Web site: The purpose of the Mark’s Bike Web site is to increase the direct online sales of high-end bike equipment by 30% over then next three quarters. The site will display sixty key items from our line, with two types of color photos: the piece of equipment itself and the equipment installed on a bike.
