This is a screen shot of the website I designed and maintained for the English for Professional Communication programme at City University’s College of Higher Vocational Studies. The design looks awkward (and quite ugly) now, but when I made it in the late 1990s, it looked OK. At that time, when a lot of people used dial-up connections, it was important to keep the memory size under control, so the images are quite small. Also, the site needed to work with monitors set to 640 x 480.
For the logo design, I was aiming for a simple, yet professional look. The main graphic features students in the foreground and images relating to communication (from hieroglyphics to mobile phones) in the background.
