Enhancing web pages with background images

HTMLA very simple but effective way to enhance the look and feel of websites is to add a background image to pages. I have found this particularly useful on WMCCM hosted pages provided as part of our free assistance to eligible SMEs and start-ups. By simply adding

< body background=”image location”>

to the html code for the page, a background image is placed on the page. Two simple websites I created recently for start-up companies under our start-up support package are good examples, the first being Smart Fabrications and the second being Multifit (UK). I find making the image partially transparent, reducing the contrast and slightly increasing the brightness makes the background image more subtle and allows the page content to still stand out.

A useful variant is to have the background static but allowing the main content to scroll freely over it. This can be done adding

< body background=”image location” bgproperties=”fixed”>

to the code for the page. A good example of this is the site I created recently for Hawk Design as part of a full 5 day assistance package.

Fully–Funded Start–up Support Packages – The Countdown Begins!

Writing about web page

Grow Your BusinessAs part of a number of initiatives promoting the WMCCM Fully-Funded Start-up Support Package, including a recently launched Google AdWords campaign, the Start-up Support site has been given a makeover. Part of this revamp includes a new display showing the number of remaining packages available, which will be kept updated as they are taken up by client companies. As these free packages are strictly limited, this countdown should provide more of a sense of urgency to start-up companies who are “thinking about” whether to take up the offer, hopefully leading to an increased rate of take-up.
