My Design Goals

Here is a list of things that I am trying to accomplish with my re-design of Boost.

  • A more compact set of web pages. The original Boost seems to spread out.
  • Anything that is a hyperlink is in maroon. In the original Boost, some of the black text does not present itself as a hyperlink.
  • A pleasing set of colors. I liked the old "Formal White" theme color scheme. This is where I started, but I had to make some adjustments.
  • A pleasing background graphic. Note: If you are using my modification, you can easily change the background.
  • The major color scheme starts in the present: $primary: #990000. This is a good place to start with your own modifications.
  • Softer, more rounded boxes.
  • A black border around the various blocks. A thicker black border around the main boxes.
  • A better view of courses on my Frontpage.
