SiteCrafting's New Website Smokes Compeditors

Web Design Do's and Donts Explained by an Expert (me, Bob Deeble)

Over at SiteCrafting world headquarters things are looking good.  Not just good. Great.  Explore their new website (below):

PHOTO: SITE CRAFTING'S new groovy website. So Sexy! 

It's got the big splashy color graphics...  plenty of solid content. A community.  More focused than the previous inceptions.  Overall this is the most advanced web design firm's website out there.     Watch the Evolution!

What Works

  • 1024x768 'modern' design
  • Nice graphics even on sub pages!
  • meaningful text (not just SEO or LAME ASS Filler)
  • straight to the Point
  • consistent branding
  • no table layouts
  • no over reliance on FLASH
  • web 2.0 feel
  • ajax widgets
  • content is organized by tabs on subpages... easy to digest
  • 'your name here' in employee section = clever
  • nice blog integration 
  • RSS Feeds
  • site map

Stuff that Needs Improvement

  • Doesn't pass validation... though minor dumb errors easily fixed
  • empty alt tags where text is used in images
  • to many 'learn more' graphic/links (not good for accessibility + SEO)
  • no print css style sheet 
  • no secret messages in code / css markup

I abstain from a design critique of my own website.  Though if I had the same resources, personel, cronie contacts and government contracts as the websites listed above, I could have something that would really dominate them ALL !!!! http://webdesign.tacoma.googlepages.com/defaultpage.htm

I can't update my BIS created website with my Mac computer - talk about needing an update - my website desperately needs one. The CMS requires a PC, which I don't have.
