I am in the process of redesigning and rebuilding the website for my training business, and the mockups from Kentish web designers Beamtwenty3 are fresh off the press. Oh, it is such an exciting moment, the birth of a new site: vibrant, nascent, untrammelled by IE6, unblemished by The Real World.
Along the way, I was looking at websites that I like, and Get Satisfaction was one of them (as was Driza-Bone, how 90s, how lovely, but that’s another story). Neil, the Beamtwenty3 designer, pointed out the oh-so delicate CSS3 text shadow on much of the site. Just 1 pixel’s worth but it’s enough. That text shadow, combined with the delicious Benton Sans typeface, delivered with @font-face, really adds a polish which means IMHO that web design has truly come of age.
