WHEN LESS MEANS MORE

WEBWATCH

Despite the Venturis, a web-design axiom is 'less certainly isn't a bore'.

Regular readers of this column will remember my enthusiasm for Adrian James' one-pager at www.adrianjames. com.

I have now added Peter Ledwith's two-pager at www.peterledwitharchitects.co. uk to the admired list.

One is the home page with his details and an outline of the scope and modest prices of his work.

I think this would benefit from some shortening - and a typeface that is adjustable in size. Mere details. Like the home page, the projects page is in two columns; the left one with the four areas of his work, the right column carrying examples according to whichever area you have chosen. Simple and clear.

What more could potential clients want?

Here is a site run by NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, at http: //deepspace. jpl.nasa. gov/dsn/features/ dsnbuilt1. html, courtesy of Nic George of Bluefin Design. It is called 'How a DSN station is built', DSN meaning deep space network.

It's a series of annotated construction progress pics, the first one of which reads, 'A suitable site with cleared land must be identified?' Just like any architectural commission.
