Designing the deepest page

Designing home pages for big sites is easy – it’s designing the deepest page in the site that’s hard. Why is this hard? Well, to design a deep page, you have to design everything that goes in between the home page and that page. You have to design the path to that page, all of the navigation that happens in between and methods for people to escape from the depths of that page.

This is where we should be showing our skills – not by showing how great our home pages are, but by showing how great an experience we have created getting to the deep parts of the site.

(Now don’t tell me that I shouldn’t be designing deep sites – large sites do need depth, and I’m always designing large sites)
