The advantages of the new design are many, but these are the main points:
- Contemporary website layouts are expected to transform automatically to fit any device that they are viewed on, so now that's up to date.
- Sophisticated layout elements are available from the MDL framework and can be applied with relative ease.
- Site maintenance is simplified by needing to edit only one HTML file.
- The use of codepen.io for editing enables expert facilitated rapid prototyping in a workshop session that is client oriented and user-friendly.
Between the dynamic layout and the relatively flexible design elements, this site is now ripe for change via incremental improvements if you like that sort of thing as I do.
