    Found this article pretty interesting. Just thought I'd link it.

    Vitamin Features How C.R.A.P is Your Site Design?

    Basically it just goes through the

    • contrast
    • repetition
    • alignment
    • proximity
    of a website and how it can enhance or defeat an otherwise good design.Well worth the 10 minutes I spent reading it imo.

    Looking at a website I was working on here... it definitely needs a tweaking...

    While the author does offer some good tips, he should take some of his own advice when it comes to contrast. I found myself drifting away from his "sea of similarity that’s boring" during reading the article.

    yah, but his concepts are pretty good, you can't argue with that....

    No I wouldn't argue with that. However, I did at one time have a better example of actual usage in my own "sea of bookmarks". If I come across it, I'll post it for others. I could probably build a website just based on my favorites alone. Probably be easier to navigate them that way.

    My favourites are comprehensive, but really there just all over the place.

    LOL I know what you mean. I looked for a good hour last night in my FAVS trying to find that site and came up empty. I came upon a few more after searching for similar CRAP friendly website creation, but nothing really worth sharing. Sorry, I just remember it being a very good site to recommend.
