Recently, I have been designing a lot of “landing pages” for businesses. These are simple call to action pages that typically provide some general sales information and links back to the main site. Not wanting to constantly reinvent the wheel and css structure, I did some research online and found a great article on “golden grid” design from Google.
I was a little apprehensive when first implementing the 960 grid structure into my design, but I quickly realized why so many great web developers have been utilizing it more and more. The structure and layout are easy, concise, and attractive. It is also very easy to role out new unique code with very little additional changes to the CSS files.
I highly recommend checking out the golden grid to anyone interested in easy web design practices.
