5 Core Elements for Building Award-Winning One-Page Websites

This sponsored article was created by our content partner, BAW Media. Thank you for supporting the partners who make SitePoint possible.

Is your next project a one-page website? You might think designing it would be an easy task compared to the multi-page website designs. You're in for a surprise.

Making a one-pager both visually appealing and user-friendly is harder than you think. The design effort alone could be a factor of 10 times greater than you normally put into a multi-page site. This is of the challenges involved in designing a one-pager. For example, you need to stuff a lot of valuable information into a much smaller space in a way that won't turn users off

This guide is centered about 5 critical elements you need to take into account. It will help your one-pager become a success. They're somewhat akin to fire, earth, water, air, and spirit, the 5 fundamental elements of nature. But they're much more important for your purposes.
