WWW pages of the past (Aug 2003)

As I've said before, WWW page design is evolving fast, and it is important to try and keep-up with current layouts. For this I've revised the CNDS page with the one given below. The key elements of it are: lots of white space; a limited range of colours; and strong and simple navigation. As this is the main index page for the rest of the CNDS page, the navigation is split into a left and right column. The left-hand one has the more fundamental options, such as the exams page link. On the other side there are important quick links which can be easily modified, depending on how the designer wants to guide the user through the site. The left-hand menus appear on most of the underlying pages, and are thus relatively difficult to change over the linked pages. The right-hand ones only appear on the main page, thus only once change is required.

The previous page was rather colourful, but lacked strong navigation:
