c4.net Redesigns The H.I.S.S. of A.S.P. Web Site
Monday, March 27, 2006
c4.net recently worked with David Ritchey to redesign the HISS of ASP web site. The main goals of
the project were to rework the site design to use more color and images on the
home page and the navigation menu, to reorganize the site content into clearer
categories, and to identify and incorporate keyword phrases to help with search
engine rankings and results.
The book “The H.I.S.S. of the A.S.P.: Understanding the
Anomalously Sensitive Person” by David Ritchey examines human senstivity and
explores topics including Altered States of Consciousness, Highly Sensitive
Person, Transpersonal Psychology, Learning Disorder, Autoimmune Disorder,
Extra-Sensory Perception, and Psychokinesis.
While working on the redesign, we determined a great
solution to help incorporate and explain many of the keywords identified for
the web site. Because many of the topics discussed in the book “The HISS of the
ASP” as well as the web site are rather scientific in nature, adding a glossary
section to the web site was a good way to present the audience a way to
understand the terminology. This solution also allowed many keywords to be
incorporated into the web site visible text.
Working closely with David throughout the project, we have
been able to achieve the project goals. The new web site uses green and purple
jewel tones on a beige background, and main body section is designed to look
like it is made from paper. The site content has been reorganized into the new
navigation menu, and the keyword phrases identified for the site have been
added to both the visible text and underlying code. We recently unveiled the
new design for the HISS of ASP web site
and invite you to take a look.
