New BCC Website Design ripping off the Bristol Blogger

Just been emailed one of the possible designs BCC are considering for the new website - it's being developed by an external company at probably great cost (FOI requests at the ready, people!). UPDATE: Initial costs are apparently £824,000.



Now, I wonder where they got the idea for that top banner from?

As an aside, it looks like the site is being styled as some sort of a New Media Production Company rather than a City Council.

Know your place, BCC!

£834k?

And all they get in design terms is an unattributed rip-off ...

My photo - which is much better than their's - is actually nicked from the excellent Archidave.

Check his extraordinary collection of photos of contemporary Bristol here:

Like mine, his stuff is free ...

Not sure how they managed to justify £834,000. Are they some kind of design agency from the future who have accidentally traveled back in time and are charging, what they believe, to be the standard rate (according to inflation in the year 2050!) Seriously, how many man hours does it take to design and build a website like that! Even if there were 5 people working for 6 whole months on it they would be charging roughly £173 per hour!! Maybe I'm charging too little!
