Exhibition of literature “Web design”

Exhibition of literature “Web design” is open in RNPLS&T in the reading hall of literature of priority direction of science and technique (room 201) from December 7, 2015 till January 17, 2016. As for now there are a lot of Internet publications and books written about Web design. Nevertheless it is still a topic of the hour.

Starting to develop a website everybody wants to create stylish design. It’s hard to determine it with words as everything that is connected with art. Website development resembles rather creation of architectural project than composition of a newspaper, magazine or a book.

Beautiful appearance of a website attracts and holds attention of visitors. Bad design can event “bury” important and interesting information. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: “Designer understands that he reached perfection not when he has nothing to add but when there is nothing to delete”.

Light… It’s hard to imagine any other phenomenon of the same importance for man. From the very beginning of the universe a man was created as a being that needs light. The Sun, the Moon and stars – all these miracles of nature – were created to lighten human being.

But developing, men were lack of daylight and moon light at night to continue their activity.

Night in a contemporary city is not a darkness hour for a long time already. At night familiar city hides under darkness and a play of light and shadow and magic world of transformation replaces it. Familiar streets, houses, squares lose their ordinary image under artificial light and another grand and magnificent city appears in front of us. Light serves a man and it will not break its assignment. Let’s sky smile to people…
