Hi all,

I am wondering what is the design aspect that is being prioritized nowadays. I am currently designing a company website that sells timber (does not need shopping cart). All the sells are via email quote. The website will use Joomla.

From some websites that I've looked, there are websites that focus on margin with big menus, broad image, and spacy margin. This type of design sometimes reduce the visibility of important information at the first start. (Because smaller resolution will have their monitor filled with the big banner)

Isn't this contradicting with the rule that user has to be able to get the information at the first page load? (In other words, eliminate the banner and move the information to the top, under the menu)

This is where I am confused at. Should I choose design over information? Is there anything that I overlook at design aspect?

Or is it different for different type of websites?
