I find this sort of web design appealing: example one
. I've seen it used for many new web applications and "web 2.0/3.0" sites. I am sooo not a designer, so I can't even tell what I'm seeing. Let me try to identify a few common points:
- header and footer (usually) with a different background color from the main content
- full blocks of color to separate different sections
- doesn't look layered (no separate visible background)
- lots of whitespace
- big font, not much text
How would you describe this style?
Is there maybe a common name for it? (like "Oh, just google 'webbity splat template'!")
If I were looking to buy a premade template or hire someone to make a template like this, how would I describe what I want?
I can do HTML & CSS if I know exactly what I need to achieve (eg. "this certain shade of blue in the background and a 2 px border and 10 px margin"). Could you tell me how to achieve something similar to above examples? Or alternatively, can you give me more examples to study?
