    Okay guys, colours play a role in web design. If you were to create say, a site, corporate for 2005, how would you re-engineer the site, from being a typical boring corporate site, to something more engaging and interactive, and what colours would you likely choose over the previous colors....

    Lets color the world shall we?

    what about re-engineering the site? how would you make a non-interactive site become more engaging?

    depends on the site really. it's kind of like a magazine layout. it's not really interactive, but if it's appealing to the eye, the customer is more likely to pick it up and possibly buy it. that's why papers like the german "bild" sell so well. the info contained within the pages is mostly made up and bs, but it's appealing to the eye with lots of pictures and big headlines.

    never been far enough into france to have even heard of that mag aa. it's just a gossip mag in the form of a newspaper.

    but most journals/ magazines are gossip stuff anyway. they like to toot their horns in all directions about themselves, irrespective if they're products, their "lifestyles" or even... their tits!

    c'mon aa, you know what i mean. it's one of those papers that just makes up stuff about anything they think may sell.

    they aren't all the same... at least not the magazines that i read. most of what i read are reviews, profiles and how-to's.
