Graphics and Art

Selecting graphics and art for your website is no easy task. The right photo can make or break the visual impression you give visitors. Some pointers:

DO:

DON'T:

  • Use group shots of people unless you can tighten in on the photo.
  • Use your website as a way to highlight your tastes in photos. Go for what's most professional for the department.
  • Be afraid to crop. Most people never crop tight enough or are afraid to crop tops of heads — a trick that works well when cropping headshots.
