Writer’s homepage has a very simple and clean design. Its layout is divided into two sections Sidebar and Main.
Let’s discuss the main section first. The Header contains author/writer’s bio, profile picture, social media links and simple sticky menu. By default menu is hidden, appears only when you click the hamburger icon.
On most of the themes author profile is placed either in sidebar or at bottom of the page, but on this theme it is placed on the top. It is natural for readers that before reading someone’s stories, opinions, books, they want to know about that person first like his background, interest, hobbies, etc.
If the bio is impressive it motivates visitors to spend time on blog and explore your content.
Below the Header there are list of articles with large titles. To read the complete article you can click its title to open in the item page.
Now let’s go through the design features of sticky sidebar. On top there is a search icon. On click it opens search bar and some labels(categories).
Below the search icon there is a hamburger icon. It contains Labels with post counters, and Links.
The POPULAR link contains the beautifully-designed Popular Posts widget. Each post in the widget is ranked by a number like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… Below the POPULAR link there is ARCHIVE link, that contains list of months and number of posts published in each month.
This is how the top section of homepage looks like on smartphones. It is fully responsive and beautifully designed.
Design Features Of Item Page
Item Page of a website is always very important because your articles are read on item page, and that’s why its item page is designed carefully by keeping the readers in mind.
