This includes:

Clarity of accessing links
Visual clarity eg
  • use of columns to divide up pages
  • use of a small number of bright moving pictures
  • use of images which "show the website content"
  • white or simple background colour to "prevent overcrowding"
excellent graphics (we would really like to see some examples of what makes excellent graphics)

Keep It Interesting

This includes:

Large enougth array of pages to keep people exploring
Keeping pages up to date
