Site design: You want it? You got it.


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

After an unexpected and unprecedented level of expression about the change of masthead (emails and comments abound), the old one has been restored… albeit with a slightly tweaked design, to fit in with the slightly tweaked design of the rest of the site which came online in February.

As for the whole site, the following describes the situation as assessed a little over a year ago:

It won’t win any awards for creativity, but it’s well organized and doesn’t fuddle your mind with complicated graphics and font. Consistent font sizes and logical formats make reading both easy and relaxing.

Is that still true today? Is there anything that annoys you about the design, or that doesn’t quite do it for you? Let me know.
