As 2012 draws to an end, we have lots of new developments ("web developments" that is) on the horizon for the coming year. Most important of these is that our new custom templates will feature Responsive Web Design, also known as RWD -- click here for definition.

In a nutshell, RWD is a design approach that optimizes the web browsing experience no matter what web device you happen to be using - desktop, laptop, iPad or other small-screen device, or mobile phone.

We are in the process of finalizing the templates of our newest sites and will provide links, examples and more info in early 2013... stay tuned!

One of my favorite lines in the movie The Blind Side is when Sandra Bullock (referring to UT Orange) says, "But I will not wear that gaudy orange, I will not. It is not in my color wheel and I'm not gonna wear it." And that gets me thinking about web design.

color wheelMost people, male and female, have a general idea of what's in their "color wheel" - what their favorite colors are, whether they are comfortable pairing, say, a purple blazer over emerald green slacks, or whether they are soothed by the sight of a closet full of khaki and blue. The same goes for interior decorating, the color of our cars, the television ads that catch our eye... all sorts of things. The bottom line is that, generally, we pay more attention than we know to color and style.
