I need some advice for my site design


Currently my site is not using CSS. The thing I want to do with it
is, I think, it needs a face lift, otherwise, it may look boring,
target audience seems very much into visual stuff, flushy, fluffy or
the site may need to look some sort of 'professional' touch.

Options for its face lift?:
-- hire some graphics designer to touch it up;
-- playing with CSS and use that to dress it up a bit;
-- find some creative student do it at little cost
-- ?

Also, keep in mind I want the site/app to load FAST like now.

Your thought?

Thks.

Then you need a professional to touch it up.
And I presume you mean *your* target market.

-- hire some graphics designer to touch it up;
Good idea if
1. The designer is also expert at HTML/CSS. Not many seem to be.
2. Or, you can take the graphics design and do the HTML/CSS yourself
-- playing with CSS and use that to dress it up a bit;
Bad idea. CSS is useful *after* you have a site design.
-- find some creative student do it at little cost
Might work. Depends on the student. Same considerations as above only
cheaper.

Probably I did not get my point cross well, I meant, some sort of
design first then CSS.

What might a good source to reach this type of students?

Thanks.

I'm looking for general advice, pointers to web pages, books, whatever. I have a moderately successful web site. The major complaint that I get, time after time, is "It's UUUGLY" As I have explained at http://aplawrence.com/Blog/B1228.html , I understand that, and to some extent it's deliberate: I am NOT looking for flash over content and I want my pages to remain fast, Lynx friendly, and easy to read.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
