Is your site Quiet?

Here’s an interesting article I came across (digg) today for all those working with content heavy sites – Andy Rutledge on “Quiet Design”. In it, he compares two major online news sources – CNN.com and USAToday.com – in things like layout, object placement and things they could do to help achieve Quiet Structure over Loud Structure.

It’s interesting to see his opinion that it’s not always about dropping content on a page to make things simpler but that it’s also about where things are on the page and how they’re laid out compared to the others.
