Not Your "Average" Joe?
Scott at Visualville recently posted this link to Joe Grisham's website. I think it is kinda cool too, Scott, but for more reasons that are unseen as well. The site is pure CSS, which means there are no tables, just positioning code that displays content. Lean? You betcha. This kind of site places it in a new breed of websites for photographers... ones who really are starting to understand the blend of technology, design and marketing that goes into a smart web presence. Sure, he coulda done it in Flash... then no search engine ranking would be had, and the updates would be expensive at least.
I hope to find some new examples of this modern site design on photographers sites and will post as many as I can find. It is important for visual people to have visually appealing web sites, that's for sure, but sometimes the tradeoff is too great. With this kind of flexibility, you can have the best of both worlds.
