    No ma'am, we in IT don't have a sense of humor we're aware of.

    While the concept is cool, it isn't practical. One of the first rules of web design is never to use mystery meat navigation.

    Yes but surely what makes a really good designer is knowing when to bend the rules and when to break them.

    The only thing I can think of to make this more accessible, and not ruin it, is to include some subtle Text only links at the bottom of the page. Just to keep text browsers happy. But keep them subtle.

    More power to him.

    yes, I see your point of view.
    But I think there is a mixture of mistery and at the same time acessibility because of the simplicity of the layout. The fact that there are only 4 bars simplifies the navigation. I think there is no graphical polution if you know what I mean.
    As the users enter the website they have the tendency to experiment the bars, so they can easily navigate.
    The non existence of regular direct menus is one of the main concetps that "break the rules" as minute44 said.
    The idea of the bottom menu suggested by minute44 is not excluded at all, in fact I'm going to make some accessibility and navigation studies whith different users so I can reach to a conclusion whether to use it or not.

    thx a lot! keep suggesting!
