Okay folks, here’s your chance to affect the redesign of my business web site! I’ve been working on a possible design choice for the web site, which is in need of a bit of TLC. I would really appreciate your comments on this design, so please do let me know what you think of it, positive or negative.
Part of the motivation for doing this was actually one of my own blog posts, where I reported on how so many web sites were not adequately accessible, and my own business web site fell quite solidly into that category. The current design uses a fixed background to form the outline of the page, and while it looks fairly tasty it does not take well to being resized – scale the text size and everything goes to pot. The page does actually conform to HTML and CSS standards, but I have to admit it’s not the best implementation ever!
This new design should be completely flexible, both in terms of text size and width – even on a huge screen it should fill the browser window completely and still look good, and by the same token it should squeeze itself happily into a miniature 800×600 desktop too, possibly less. The two keys to making this happen are 1) CCS, and 2) the use of transparent PNG images.
Anyway, do let me know what you think of this initial design. It’s still in its early stages of design, so there is plenty of room for improvement, so if you think something could be done better then do leave a comment.
