New York, NY (PRWEB) March 2, 2005
Catalyst Group Design, a leading user-centered design consultancy, today issued a new white paper, ÂScreen Size Matters: Best Practices for Designing Sites to Match Browser Resolution.Â For some time, the consumer default for ÂseeingÂ the Internet on a computer monitor has been 800x600 pixels. However, this can no longer be called the sole standard Â since millions of people now are looking at the Web at higher resolutions. CatalystÂs analysis takes an in-depth look at what screen resolution is and how it affects both the economic and qualitative aspects of good website design - and offers suggestions for how the marketplace should deal with the shift in consumer monitor resolution.
ÂItÂll be twelve to twenty-four months before the market again approaches a single standard,Â said Nick Gould, CEO of Catalyst. ÂDecisions you make in the meantime can be expensive if youÂre not careful.Â
