When your job is to sell a dream of how your product or service can improve your client’s life, quality photography is an invaluable resource. Residential remodelers find themselves precisely in that position. As such, we worked with D.C. Boone to acquire professional photography of their finest projects. This photography has been integrated into every aspect of their website.
Further, the D.C. Boone website takes advantage of the latest in web browser support, yet degrades gracefully in less capable browsers. In Safari and Firefox, the bounding boxes have rounded corners. Internet Explorer does not support this specification, so IE displays square corners. IE6 does not support transparency, and as such, the background of the content box is opaque. Other browsers, including IE7 and IE8 incorporate semi-transparent backgrounds, allowing obscured details of the background image to bleed through while maintaining adequate contrast for legible text. This website is a wonderful example of how web design can reach beyond the lowest common denominator, yet remain well-styled — even in out-dated web browsers.
