The website I’m working on focuses on a table of data and I’m having a real hard time getting it to look good since. Are there any examples of other websites that are mostly just a page that has a large table of data on it that looks good?
Hmm, for some reason I thought I said this already, but I obviously didn’t so…
Okay, well, it’s a table, so there really isn’t too much you can do to make it fancy and pretty (that I can think of off the top of my head anyways). You could add a background to the whole table; add photos of these people; not list it as a table? (or at least not one that obvious) - maybe give each of them like 50% of the page (or something like that) and in the box give some info (other than what’s listed, obviously, something interesting/personal like, “Likes to relax on his deck with his blood hound Sam and watch the birds that live in the trees around the creek.”)
That’s all I can really think of to make it interesting - not making it an obvious table (which I think of as a chart - which is what you have there), and adding photos.
Hi I have some beautiful & creative ways of featuring tables on your web design but as I am a newbie here at this forum and cannot post links right now…so for you I have added the links in updates of my facebook fan page - “Creative web design studio”.
Hope it helps. If it does don’t forget to become a Fan …cheers
Um… I was kinda hoping for a visual. But really since the table’s being used for what it’s meant to be used for I’m not sure what you mean by “looks good”. The only thing I can really think of is having nice font and background colors.
