Tanya Merone's one page site
December 14, 2006 at 5:35 PM
Tanya Merone has accomplished what I once set out to do; design a personal site that is only one page. Her site is a portfolio of the work she has done and she did a very good job with the attention to details in the design and architecture. I sometimes see sites that are thousands of pages deep and wonder why. Simplification of the message and the content should always be a priority in any website.
Hi Nick, I totally agree with you, the real beauty of it, apart from the stunning visuals is the simplicity of keeping it all on one page. I saw Tanya's website mentioned on a number if "CSS showcase sites". However, there's very little commentary on these sites. I think it's really important to educate people as to why the design works as well as just telling people how beautiful it looks. To this end, I wrote a review of Tanya's site on my blog. If you've time, check it out.
Good review Laurence. We try to make a habit not to critique or review sites in the blog and instead let our readers do the judging themselves... this is why we stick to mentions and links ;)
I dunno. I thought it looked beautiful when I saw it. But then I showed it to my girlfriend (totally not a website person) and she thought it looked "like a template". So I guess it might depend on her audience.
