Note: this entry is part of a larger group of texts about the SMCS assignment. To read the full story about this project, start at SMCS / Introduction, and click through all the successive pages from there.
On another note – we wrote the texts below quite a while ago. We just reread them, and noticed some of them seem a bit outdated, and might need to be rewritten. Some of the used images need some reworking as well. We'll do this in the near future.

We're not exactly website designers. We only enjoy working on websites when it's part of a larger graphic identity project, when the website is somehow 'embedded' in printed matter. For SMCS, we kept the website really basic, as we actually always do. We like our websites simple and understated.

The underlying structure of the SMCS site was given, as there was already a website company maintaining and hosting the site. So, since we weren't responsible for the actual programming, our work was mainly to design a 'skin': an interface that would fit in with the rest of the SMCS graphic identity.
We based the entire interface on the design of the Stedelijk Museum Bulletin: large, capitalised headings in red and blue. See also SMCS / Bulletin 2.
