This design was created for the Somerset County Democratic Committee. It was on-line for approximately 1-1/2 years before they moved over to a different, Flash design. I'm leaving this description up because the design incorporated a lot of interesting features.


The three-column layout was accomplished using Cascading Style Sheets instead of tables. The header featured a photo of the Somerset County Courthouse, and the shades of blue were chosen to compliment the color of the sky.

The "News" link included the date that the page was last updated. I used PHP code to display a flashing red ball next to the link if the page had been updated within the past 30 days.

The website was set up with a Content Management System so that members of the committee could quickly update events, officers, and other news.
