Be Different, But Not Too Different
Are you trying to stand out in the wrong way? Yes, your website should make its mark, but with content not with its layout. There are general standards that website users expect, whether they are aware of it or not. Stray too far from those expectations and your user will be lost and leave in a blink of an eye.
In fact, studies have shown that users rate websites higher the more that they fall in line with the typical layout. So what are some typical layout features you should adhere to?
1. Logo in the top left
2. Horizontal menu at the top of the page
3. Social icons in your footer
4. Mobile responsive design
There are a number of prototypical design elements, but these are the main ones you should stick to.
