This sporting life - Dumfries and Galloway

Ross Wylie is another talented sportsman from Dumfries and Galloway. Following in the successful footsteps of racing drivers Allan McNish and David Coulthard, there must be something conducive to developing talents for racing cars in the south of Scotland.

The new Ross Wylie Racing website is to mark the start of Ross racing Mini's in the 2012 season. This is a progression from his successful kart racing years in the UK and Europe and he has had to work hard to show that being slightly older than his peers is not going to be a barrier to success.

Callisti is looking forward to developing the website and integrating some interesting in-car video footage showing what really happens during races...

What is the standard screen size anyway?

What are you designing for?

There is a glut of possible display resolutions or screen sizes for your viewing interface now, largely due to variation and convergence of traditional computer display screens, digitalisation and wide screen, then HD television.

These are roughly split between 3 main contenders:

18% approx - 4:3 ratio (following in the great VGA tradition)
42% approx - 16:10 (Widescreen)
20% approx - 5:4 (1280x1024 pixels)

It is a design consideration for fixed width display websites but also for desktop wallpapers based on bitmap images. There are some new Allan McNish images available on the official website...

Allan McNish

Callisti has teamed up with CSS Stellar to provide the web presence for Allan McNish. This is an informative, subscription based website for fans and followers of the successful racing driver who hails from Dumfries and Galloway.

There are some bespoke systems in place on the website which were developed by Peter Graves, a development luminary who Callisti has worked with on several projects to date.
