Web Design Profile Home Page

Purpose

An Altavista search for "design guidelines" and "Web" on February 9, 1997, returned 1000 hits, of which approximately 140 were individual guidelines pages.

A review of guidelines pages yields many redundant points, but also a bewildering array of general, specific and sometimes contradictory bits of advice for the designer.

Our purpose is to reduce confusion by developing a set of profiles based on the relative degree to which the designer is charged with evoking an affective response, delivering content, or combining both.
