Most websites present a single 'look' to the world. This house style includes graphics, colours, typography & page arrangement and is usually difficult to change. This is because the style information is normally all mixed up with the actual real content - the words.

However by separating the style from the content, into style-sheets, change is made much easier. Indeed we can offer different style-sheets to the user - each offering a radically different 'face' to the web site yet without changing its content.

For this site, we have created a number of style-sheets, which you can try out on this page. Some are usability aids - for people with disabilities or using handheld devices. Others are for show, and a few offer object lessons in bad design!

Bad designs

a small show case of the sort of design that we won't do for you...

  • clashing colours design we took the sunset layout and replaced graphics and altered colour schemes [text may be invisible to those with red-green colour blindness].
  • poor typography - we took the black & white layout, removed almost all typography control and a little bit of layout - to show the importance of font selection and spacing.
  • retro design - long in the tooth. Minimal design style dating back to early web pages.

Alternate styles

There are a number of different layouts or 'skins' for this site: company, rainbow, child, calm, stormy, austere, high contrast and more...
