The word at the moment seems to be: “design”, or should I say “redesign”.
With CSS Reboot having just occurred there are loads of freshly re-designed sites avaliable on the net, for your viewing pleasure. CSS Reboot was a community event for web professionals were hundred of designers from all over the world launched their web standards-based redesigns simultaneously on May 1st 2006, bringing traffic, interest and a little respect to their sites.
Locally, Somenoone.co.za and JasonBagley.com both rebooted their sites. Both definitely worth a look at. Well done guys.
With all these new sites around, I have decided the time has come to step it up a gear, and redesign the Digital Farm.
I am reading lots of articles to assist me with the best redesign possible. The redesign will cohere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, which basically means it will be entirely Web 2.0 based, using divs and CSS stylesheets extensively. The header graphic will probably not change, neither the overall colours, but the usability of the site, and content layout will recieve a much needed overhaul.
Time frame? I have none, whenever I have a spare moment I will work on it. It could be ready next week, it could be ready next month.
Why? Let’s be honest, hopefully to attract some more design work my way! And of course challenge my skills.
