Found an interesting site today called web.without.words which was developed by Paul Armstrong to visually represent the idea that hierarchy, grid systems and uniformity ultimately leads to a more natural user experience. He takes the overall structure of any website, strips it naked of the distractions of text and ads and images and showing a site for what the eye unconsciously perceives – pattern, consistency, unformity, predictability and balance. Each site has this visual breakdown and some analysis of the structure. There aren’t as many examples as you would hope for but it is an interesting approach to analyzing popular sites.
