Web design checklist

Attention points to check off before launching a website.

It’s easy to lose track of all the little attention points when optimizing a website. This list helps me to check off each point. The list is by no means exhaustive and not every item is required all the time, but it’s a start. It’s a checklist, not a tutorial on how to build websites and it assumes you have some basic understanding about accessible web design: make sure your site works without JavaScript, split your HTML structure from the layout, etc.
