How william.drew.johnson started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We provide content analytics about great publishers across the web based on data we get from crawling a sample of their pages.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
I'd like the colors to be soft-ish and skew slightly feminine. High design is key! It MUST look attractive and aspire to attractively present data in insightful ways.
Home page: The goal is to get someone to draw users deeper into the site and (ultimately) enter their email. They are prompted to enter an email in order to view a crawl or in order to trigger a crawl. But we want to show recent crawls and a very small amount of intelligence on the logged-out homepage so that someone is encouraged to interact.
Logged in version of the home page: Once someone has logged in, the primary goal is to get them to submit one or more websites for crawling. We also want them to visit crawl-results pages and to interact with the information on those pages.
Crawl results page: This is the most important page and we want the data here to be displayed beautifully. The page should feel instructive, informative, and trustworthy. We drive sign ups to our partner business, VigLink, who helps great content publishers earn from their product-promotional activities. People are more likely to sign up if they feel they have learned something and the value proposition is clear. Those two things will come from superior design
There is likely more work following this for the successful designer. And I *really* want someone who understands the importance of thoughtful visual display of quantitative data. Extra credit if you've read Tufte's book by the same title.
Best if you log into outclicks.net (it's one-click) and poke around, particularly on a crawl-results page. We pack a lot of information on that page, which makes it VERY long in the expanded version. I want someone who understands the overlap in UX and can effectively combine lots of interesting information into a cohesive and informative design.
I encourage you also to submit a crawl for a website you care about and want to learn about, and think about what information you would expect to find but don't.
