IA fun with corporate guidelines

the 955 pixel grid

I am currently looking at a guideline which reads:

  • All sites must be resizable
  • User can select higher and lower resolution and layout must adapt
  • User must be able to resize font and layout must adapt accordingly

The next line reads:

The grid is fixed and pages will be exactly 955 pixels with a 21/40 pixel step.

So hum… the site is both fixed and flexible, not sure how to approach this one. I guess a slight distortion of the space-time continuum should let me produce a design that passes muster with the brand police…

Ah guidelines ;-)
