I like to redesign my years old [url removed, login to view] website into the current state of the art design. Lots of CSS and nice graphic design. I started this project in 1996 (DOS version) and had several different websites since then. The main purpose of the website is to download my Astronomy Software and edit user locations. I wrote the current Software in C++ at around 2003.
This is how I like it:
Home page: The current print screen but some more text and nicer design.
Download page: Simular to the current one, you can use all print screens but have to rewrite the text to better english.
Location search page: Use the same Flash swf, but make the surroundings look nicer.
Print screen page: Use the current print screens, but let the souroundings look nicer.
Links page: Create a nice links page.
About page: Nicer look, I provide more information.
Articles page: Nicer surroundings, I will use the same text and add 20 more new articles. Navigation to see all articles.
Manuals page: I need only one page to download a new manual PDF.
Astronomy, solar system theme. The content embedded in nice NASA/Hubble images for instance. As far as I know those habe no copyright if credit is given. Not only copy images and place it, it should be adapted to the design. All pages should have a different design but be of the same theme. You can also take print screens of the software and use it for the design.
The text has to be extended and more user friendly and in perfect english. My english is pretty bad.
- No tables, all CSS.
- Nice Navigation on top or left side
- Space for Adsense Ads like now
I built websites in the past but have no time for this one. Can you build that without too much interaction from me ? The old website is the example and delivers the content. I would like to see a basic markup (design) before the details are implemented. It should look simple and light with CSS, like todays websites.
