D.C. Boone

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.
