International Christian Response

What can I say, International Christian Response (ICR) is a beautifully designed website. The colours and images are also quite fitting. Another thing I find appealing is the wonderful use of the hover effect. The images are displayed with a certain hue but upon moving your mouse over them you are pleasantly shown the full colour image. Their navigation is well done (also making use of the hover effect) and whichever page you are on it has an active state so you know exactly where you are.
As for the code, ICR went for XHTML 1.0 Strict and did a good job, except for 5 errors that came up in validation. Upon checking those errors though you will find that it was just a matter of inserting a
<p> within another
<p> but those can easily be fixed. There was also one CSS error, but that should be easy to fix.
At first I wasn’t too keen on the torn paper background image but after thinking about it and reading more about ICR, the fact that they work with persecuted Christians, it is a fitting background image. The torn edges bring across that brokeness that a persecuted Christian may face, the war torn areas they live in and hardships they go through or even the tattered edges of a bible.
All in all, I really like it. Job well done by the designers.
Update: This site now validates as flawless XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS.
