Disseminary's new design plans
AKMA has posted a new design for the disseminary site
. Which is good looking and lively.
( !! warning pet peeve
ahead !! )
BUT it has a wide empty gutter on the right, with nothing in it except the logo. Now, I know that designing for a full screen is difficult, a fixed width is so much easier. 800 or 1024 pixels depending on what you think is the largest screen that will cover almost all your users - no designer wants to make people scroll left to right unnecessarily do they... But this doesn't look like a failure to allow for a basic constant of web design - VARIABLE screen width - but rather a deliberate attempt to introduce "white space" into an otherwise typically cluttered screen.
I wish I had a big enough high enough resolution screen to be free with the old white space (a constant of good print design) the fact is such screens are (a) expensive and (b) not very portable - and I like my laptop.
So, AKMA, please find somewhere else for the logo...
