As you may know, I have been working with Melissa Bergen on a new website for the multi-talented Amber Stevens. We launched the new look this morning! It was a fun design to work with and I am really happy with the outcome. The homepage features a XHTML/CSS menu, which is actually comprised of CSS Sprites and an unordered HTML list. I also used another unordered list and CSS sprite for the menu on the rest of the pages. This allowed me to give the appearance of uneven rollovers, and using CSS Sprites kept the filesize relatively low. There was a very good article awhile back on A List Apart about CSS Sprites.
I used Slimbox2 for the photo galleries for its’ flexibility, small size (4kb compressed), and overall appearance.
Check out Amber Stevens’ New Website, and let me know what you think! If you have any questions, leave a comment and I would be more than happy to come up with an answer!
