Wbsite Sugestions Please

  cortez© 18:49 12 Feb 2008


I am designing a website prototype for a university and have a few general ideas on how I'm going to make it look. However, could do with some suggestions please. What general things would you look out for when designing such a site. E.g. what things to avoid at all costs and to include etc. The site is aimed at university students. Any input appreciated.

Many thanks

clean clear background
easy navigation
no sound on entering the site
no flash entry
quick loading images
If it is for university students then have on the front page a photo of a group of smiling students!

Not really the design but you should have the domain .ac.uk.

I believe they need this suffix (.ac.uk) to claim certain things as students.
