This may have been blogged before however no harm in relisting. If you would like to have some additional reading or reference points on Official Publications it is worth taking a look at the SCOOP Blog. (Standing Committee on Official Publications). SCOOP has aimed to improve the access to, and availability of, UK official public…
The Business Committee has decided, for a number of reasons, to change the SWOP logo to something simpler and cleaner. Due to the relative starkness of the new logo I felt it necessary to change the theme of this website at the same time. The theme I originally chose was called, aptly enough, ‘Plane’:
At Wednesday’s meeting I received some useful feedback on this theme. The two main points were: the banner is far too large (which is true – the screen is really just made of banner); and the menu bar is almost unnoticeable up at the top of the screen. Following this I’ve been investigating new themes today. I tried out a few before settling on this one. It’s called Sequential:
I really like this. It’s clean and unfussy, elegant and professional. It echoes the simplicity of the new logo but has a complimentary colour scheme that is understated but gives the site some life. Also, the menu bar has far more prominence on the page… but what do you think?
I’ll be interested to see what you say (and I want to test the polling function) but I do not promise to be bound in any way by the results 😉
I’ve been looking for other momentous occurrences on that day but, to be honest, Thursday the 18th February 2010 was kind of dull. It looks like the Houses of Commons and Lords were both in recess. The Scottish Parliament was too but, according to the Minutes of Chamber Proceedings – 24 February Vol. 3, No 55 Session 3, the Scottish Law Commission somehow managed to lay their Annual Report 2009 (SG/2010/8) before Parliament on the 18th (it was not subject to any parliamentary procedure). Nicely done SLC!
