Some of you might remember I put up a preview of a design I was working on for my business web site a few days ago. When I looked at it again this morning I thought to myself “that looks scarily like a Powerpoint theme from the Windows 3.1 era!!” I think it was the vector hills I used and the colour scheme. So here is something completely different (well, mostly), which I’m a little more pleased with. This sample is not 100% accurate to the final design, but it’s close enough for you to get a feel for it.
Again, your comments are most welcome. It was nice to see an old friend leaving a message last time (thanks for that!), and I’d appreciate any feedback on this design too.
I have also been enjoying exploiting the power of PNG alpha channels with the Diocese of Chelmsford web site, which now sports a Christmas-themed icon in the top right corner, using a cunning fade to nothing so that it blends into the background nicely. Ah, I do love the power of CSS!
