WELCOME
   

Welcome to my web site. My goal as a designer is to create fast-loading, easy to navigate pages. You will need to use a recent version of Internet Explorer or Netscape. The pages don't always look right if you use some other browser.

The site is now in its third stage. The design of this page is from version 2.0 and it was also used as a template for the Version 2.0 home page.

As you go through my site you will see a variety of page styles, navigation systems and color combinations--samples of different solutions to differing design questions. Let me know which ones you like a lot and which ones you don't.

If you need me to create a site for you or to update the one you already have please get in touch with me.

Have fun here,
Ken Young

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION
   

In June 2004 I left California and now live in Pensacola, Florida. For 30 years before this move I lived in Los Angeles. In 2001 I retired after 25 years as a college admission officer. Now I have the time to get involved in web site design. The site got going in April 2002. It started out, and remains, mostly links to my favorite sites. There's lots of variety so there's a good chance you'll find someting of interest here for you.

After taking classes in both Adobe and Macromedia web design programs I find I like the Macromedia products better. The first version of this site was hand-coded in HTML. In this current version I used mostly Dreamweaver, HTML, Fireworks, Flash and ActionScript. And here and there a bit of Freehand, JavaScript, Photoshop, ImageReady and Illustrator.

I promise you will find no blinking text, no under-constrction signs and no embedded sounds.

In general, although it isn't totally PG-rated, it certainly is not XXX. But be careful, it's a site of links to other sites. And I can't predict where they can take you.
