The Electric Giraffe Project

The Electric Giraffe Project now has an all-new website!

Ok, it looks almost exactly like the old one, but it’s been rewritten from the ground up using a different CMS and using responsive design techniques, meaning it will now work much better on mobile and tablet devices.

Rather than using a traditional fixed width design, a responsive design allows the size of the page to adjust to the size of the viewing area, be that the size of the browser window on a PC or the size of the screen on a mobile device. Further to that, the use of CSS @media queries allows the layout of the website to change dynamically based on the size of the page. One example of this is that the website’s main menu appears on the left on a wide screen, but is moved to the top on a narrow screen to allow more room for the articles.
