growth and taxes to neighborhood and downtown news The Yale website is very easy to use You can find anything you need very easily and you don t need a Yale degree I think the site strives for complete visual consistency but doesn t completely achieve itI really like the strong look and layout of the homepage and its header bar Iwould have liked to have seen that throughout the entire site and subsites that is not the case Some ofthe bells and whistles they were using weren t working all too well they might not have been completely Safari capable butI didn t get any notices that itwas a browser issue h i 39 link hic l site regarding accessibility which covers the programming for the different sites When we come to that unit 1 will post this page again It looks like avery helpful site

Universities This page also offers links to some really good resources such as Webster 3 OED and The Greenwich Library As a very smart move the next Tab down for PARENTS is a locked panel This is an elite school that takes the privacy of is studenm and parenm very serious It makes a lot of sense that this kind of information should not be made available to anyone on the web This would be very important to me ifl was sending my child to this school Silverpoint Web Solutionsfor Schools has created a very effective template for their schools and it is down to an exact science The Greenwich

one of the userfriendliest sites out there because ultimately University ofPhoenix is selling you an interface that you need to be able to work with if you choose to go to their Online University The writing of this website is a bit salesy and vague It seems that to get the nitty gritty information you really need to fill out one of their forms and give them YOUR information first I have notbeen able to find anywhere tuition information or schedule for the school year This is making me very curious so I search for articles on this I have found one article in the Chronicle which list Undergraduate credit hour 410 master s credit hour 505 doctorate credit hour 550 Online tuition rate on average is 20percent higher than ratefor courses taught in classrooms 39 quot 39 l I am sold now that this is a sales site and so far lacks the education I7m assuming when you enroll in the University of Phoenix you are directedto another site like our BlackBoard that takes care of the education portion of the Corporation This site lacks a lot of things most of the education sites I ve visited have like Faculty descriptions Very interesting In conclusion the following is the biggesttell

Professor Adams 0 Summer 07 Exercise 6 Good and Bad Web Typography Good veercom Veer is a good example of a site that is able to maintain integrity through typography and hierarchy while still displaying a lot of content They have appropriately styled and saved imagery and type for quick loading and easy navigation There is nothing worse than waiting for sites to load bulky backgrounds or large photographs Navigation through this site is controlled through a series of tabs up top which control a larger window frame below for rotating content Regardless of section photography or illustration the user can find content easily below It is good that they keep this larger window consistent Typography is consistent in font Various weights sizes and colors within a sans serif type family are able to establish a strong visual aesthetic The Veer logo is prominently displayed in the top left and established the highest level of hierarchy To the right are a set of tab directing the user to various sections of their web presence Directly below this is a convenient search button I really appreciate their sans serif face Veer39s presence would be changed drastically if they used a script or serif Their choice speaks to modern creative and up to date creatives The color pallet is very modern and calm Grey black white and orange create a dynamic environment that allows the user to find photography illustration or type the main thing veer is trying to market The quotmerchandisequot is able to shine through consistent surroundings Tab buttons are a great system to achieve organization for easy navigation They are clean and change color according to what section you are in This is great and helps the user confirm that they are indeed in the type section Because of Veer39s simplistic yet functional design find myself becoming a repeat Visitor I check back for updates or new content Their nofuss approach is very appealing and helps visitors want to come back I cannot say this of all sites but Veer is one that I keep coming back to HOLLY ANN SCHMIDT httpwwwveercom SCHMIDTZ Home l Swimwear Photos Films Bio Contact
