Starting with the Zoom layout
Inspired by the assignment Joe Clark set at @media, the current design of this site uses a kind of Zoom layout. Joe suggests that in order to make our websites more accessible we go from multicolumn to single column [check], small fonts to big fonts [check] and simplify and prioritize [check].
So I’ve got myself a zoom layout. I guess I could also create a version with white text on a black background too. The next step is to create the opposite of the zoom layout using more than one column, small fonts and more complexity. I’ll offer this style as an alternative to those who don’t like the default: Zoom layout. I hope to attempt this over the next few weeks if the weather is bad.
Apologies for my writing style of late. You’d be forgiven for thinking that English isn’t my first language! Must. engage. brain.
