Subject: UKNM: new yell site
From: Stefan Magdalinski
Date: Mon, 16 Nov 1998 14:51:28 +0000 (GMT)


one of the most heavily marketed sites in the UK.

new site redesign:

not a single piece of HTML text. no optimisation of the images that are
there. no ALT tags.

took over a minute to download a simple three element form on a 56k
modem. Exactly the same visual design properly implemented, could
probably be done in less than a quarter of the size.

very '95. Totally unprofessional. I'm posting this here in the hope that
someone from yell is a lurker and can go and clunk their designers round
the head.

anyway, the site's crashed, so it's all academic at the mo.

[Sam says: I posted this through because I thought a re-design would be of interest to list members, not for a long convoluted conversation about the merits of DHTML versus Flash, etc.]
