New Look for the IOS Website

 

Today, after a few weeks of intensive work, we launched a new version of our main web site www.internationaloaksociety.org. The main change is the graphical user interface, that is how the website looks. 

The previous graphical user interface was designed in 2007 and simply taken over in the current website when I created it in 2012. It had become outdated. Its most critical short-coming was that it did not display well on mobile devices, which have become pervasive. We have also more and more editorial content on our website that deserved to be better displayed.  

We had three objectives in mind when we decided to redesign the interface:

  1. The user interface had to be fully responsive, that is it could be displayed on any device: PC, tablet, smartphone...
  2. It had to make optimal use of the space available on the device where it is displayed;
  3. It had to be more readable, giving priority to the content., more specifically articles and blog entries

I hope we have succeeded and that you'll like the new look of our website.
