    Talking No Images, CSS Only Web Design?

    I am in midst of the web design project, I'm nearly 70% done. Just as I was winding up for the day, I realized that I hadn't used even one image so far. Just pure CSS.

    Given this constraint, and even without; the design I've ended with, I feel suits the layout and the website almost perfectly. I'll give you the link when the work is completed and published online, but have you ever made a design where the use of images/graphics was minimal, even nil.

    And those who swear by Photoshop, would you finally concede that you dont need "stunning" graphics for good web design?

    It really depends on the site. A photographer's portfolio should definitely have images if you ask me

    Very true. I can't wait to see what a site looks like with no images, or at least the kind of a site that does.

    Check him out, no images. A complete theme/layout for a website:

    Home Page Example: http://programmerassist.com/
    Topic Example: http://programmerassist.com/topic/11
    Question Example: http://programmerassist.com/question/268
    Article Example: http://programmerassist.com/article/241
    User Profile Example: http://programmerassist.com/user/5

    (This is not spam, I'm just showing off my image less design )

    Ofcourse the theme is not perfect, we've already lited out a few changes that needs to be made. However it is a pretty good start I believe.

    No Images, pure CSS.
