Gratuitous use of fold at the University of Virgina

| | Comments (0)
The Cavalier Daily has by far a more interesting design than the Crimson, but what it makes up for in form, it lacks in function.  The layout always has the navigation bar at the top, with three photos at the bottom of the visible page when it first loads.  However, these photos are cut off at the bottom, much like how pictures are included in most physical papers along the fold.  While I understand that this is to get the person viewing the webpage to scroll down and read more, the news is buried in an attempt to get the reader to pay attention to the page.  When the viewer first glances at the page, they do not get any news.  The Cavalier Daily could include some headlines in the white space above the photos, or include more photos above the online fold to improve the design.
