With the right parts, you can build a website that will drive conversions, build a relationship with your audience and boost your brand to new heights. Pick the wrong ones or put them together incorrectly, and your site can’t do what you need it to do. So, let’s take a look at the building blocks of awesome website layouts. When you stack them the right way, the parts of a website can build something great. Like this block recreation of Westeros. And depending on the type of business and content, different layouts will work better for different things. Mix and match these layouts based on what works suits you and your content. The Power Grid is The Grid on steroids. This layout incorporates different squares, rectangles, and areas of space within the grid. This layout is an awesome solution if you’ve got tons of different types of content (think video, text, opt-in forms, images… you get the picture) that you need to special leads organize. The Featured Image If your business, organization or project isn’t heavy on the images, the Featured Image layout should be right up your alley. This layout brings attention to one photo or graphic (the featured image captainobvious) while keeping the rest of the page simple and text-focused. Dental Website Design Design by aneley Landscape design website Design by geniusvibe The Grid Think of The Grid as the advanced version of The Featured Image. This layout features one large graphic area followed by a section separated into multiple blocks of varying shapes and sizes. You can insert any kind of content you want into those boxes—product images, text boxes, featured blog posts, whatever strikes your fancy. This layout works great when a lot of content that needs to be displayed. Or, you know, a website. Either one is cool. Start with the building blocks— Your layout is the structure of your website. This is a great fit for folks with fewer visuals and more content.
