Lifecycle Engineering and Technical Support desired a new website based on web standards. To complicate things, they wanted to specifically cater to Internet Explorer 8. With this, many challenges arise: how do we create a website that takes advantage of of a contemporary look and feel, while maintaining aesthetic conformity across different browsers? How do we overcome display inconsistencies between the different browser rendering engines? How do we support web standards, when the browser we are using barely knows the meaning of those words?
Visual Design & Aesthetics
Aesthetically, we continued to use hues that denoted technology (blues and cool purples), as well as military aircraft. Headings were broken up into a hierarchy of three levels, using both regular and condensed sans-serif typefaces. These clean, compact typefaces contribute to the high-tech, contemporary feel of the overall site.
