Your website’s design should never happen by accident.

When people talk about website design, they usually mean the colors, typography, images, etc. In other words, the things that look like “design.” And that’s true, these parts are all part of the website’s design. But they are just that, only part.

The other part is the structure or layout of each page template. The number of columns, the spacing between them, how they are arranged on a laptop monitor vs. a mobile device, etc. Both of these parts work together to make up the overall design of your website. Both are also important enough to your visitors’ overall experience to make sure they are given enough time to be done properly.

This also means that each part of the design can be created independently of each other.

Using a website style tile gives you the freedom to explore structure and layout by nailing down your website’s look and feel on its own.

A website style tile is the visual equivalent of a brand’s print style guide. Instead of creating a single image file that includes both the layout and the brand decisions of the website all at once, a website style tile will include only the brand decisions.

How a style tile benefits your website:

  • Allowing the best people possible to focus on their areas of expertise while making decisions for your website. You can delegate the look and feel to a branding expert and layout and structure to a UI specialist or team.
  • Save time in the design stage when you know you will be using a framework. There are many website frameworks available to help speed production (Bootstrap, Genesis, etc.). If your website is using one, you already know the structure but just need the “skin” to lay over it. A style tile determines that skin, regardless of the layout.
  • Great for teams who prototype in the browser. Many website design and development teams using in-browser prototypes as a more natural means of determining the layout of a website-in-progress. A style tile fits seamlessly into this workflow.
