H Ch’i M L

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 06, 2003

Feng Shui for web designers lays down some rules and offers up some suggestions about building harmonious web sites:

- “The messy dithering of colours that occurs with JPEG compression is bad feng shui.”

- “Pages [that] have flowers growing on them [add] a comforting reflection of the natural world.”

- “Load up your website with lots of multimedia gimmicks and you’ll have a ch’i tornado, which is no good at all.”

- “The vector-based design platform of Macromedia Flash encourages curvy images and is therefore blessed with positive ch’i.”

- “Only have a smallish number of carefully-selected links. Long lists of links are stagnant in appearance, and the ch’i rapidly escapes through them.”
