Use Graphics When They Help
Graphics, including background colors, background graphics, logos
and other graphics files,
should be used in a page design and across a site
where they can help the user enjoy, understand, and use the
site. Since large graphics slow page load time, graphics
should be used sparingly.
Red Square Arts Council
The RSAC is a voluntary group that works to preserve the
unique ambiance of the UW's Red Square, with its subtle interplay
of monolithic concrete, dusty fired brick, stained sandstone,
and lush maple trees.
- Does the wobbling obelisk actually relate to the purpose
of the council, or is it just something cute?
- The page is about Red Square, but does that mean the
background has to be red?
- The blue heading contrasts harshly with the red background -
is this necessary for the purpose of the page?
