This JB Website is the culmination of a project which started over fifteen years ago. It is important to us that the web design represent the warmth, professionalism, and academic excellence of the curriculum. We have gleaned ideas for the elements we wish to see reflected on our website by extensively examining digital images, homepages, and entire websites. Here is what we would like to see:
• Layout: clean, simple, warm, inviting and professional with an attractive balance between text and graphics.
• Text: A LARGE amount of text will need to appear on each page. It is important to us that the font should be friendly on the eyes and organized in a readable, straightforward way. We prefer black text on a white background and favor considerate text headings. There should always be visual relief when text is presented, perhaps 30 – 40% of the visual field taken up with text, the balance with graphics or photos.
• Images: Photos and illustrations should both be used.
• Colors: We favor a warm color palette with clear rather than muddy colors.
