The Personal Disquiet of

Mark Boulton

Rather nice site

– November 5th, 2004 –

Having featured on Stylegala when this site was launched I regularly look at the gallery and say the odd thing in the forums. Occasionally a site featured on the gallery jumps out at me as being something rather special - today was one of those days.

Simmons College website is very refreshing, not only in terms of CSS, but also in terms of design. The palette is spot on, in design trend terms - earthy, pastels, calming colours. The inspiration is from the illustrations used on the site (and it’s nice to see illustrations being used). The typography is also very tasteful. Clean serifs and san serifs throughout, although sometimes they don’t quite work and look a bit cluttered.

Very nice site though and well worth ten minutes of your time looking round it.
