Those kind designs are often difficult to create, they request special template layout with lots of module positions in rows, and designers must clearly convey information while also satisfying aesthetic goals. The main concept of the One-Page layout is based on this idea: links don’t open a new page; instead, when a user clicks on the sub-menu links the screen jump down the page to that particular content’s section. These designs are challenging as they are less structured and have a wider range of sizes and aspect ratios. Aesthetics are also important, as designs must often be eye-catching and visually pleasing.
