为什么内容应该塑造您的设计

+$I can't stress enough how important it is, especially when doing web-based design comps, to have real content as early as possible in the design process.

+$It doesn't have to be the actual copy that will be used in the final result, but it needs to be representative of the content that is to come.

+$The idea is to know as much as you can about the content, so you can avoid surprises.

+$In a recent project, when the small number of navigation items suddenly went from three to seven, we had to rethink navigation entirely – keeping it at the top of the page on small screens, and placed horizontally on wider screens was no longer a feasible option.

+$It's a simple example, but a lot of these little issues can be avoided when you get content first.

+$The shape of content

+$Another advantage to having content early is that you get to know the 'shape' of the content and can design appropriately.

  • +$Are there five buttons in this app or 10?
  • +$Are these things we could use icons for, or are we using text?

+$These choices greatly impact your UI, and you can only account for them when you have content from the very beginning.

+$Some people don't like thinking about content first, preferring that the designer create a pretty container into which they can pour their content. But that's decoration, not design.

+$Knowing your content is thinking before doing. It's a smart way to design, and will save everyone a lot of headaches.
