Redesigning - A few of my latest projects
While I have been super busy lately working on a myriad of different projects for clients and personal alike here are a couple that I have just got out the door.
We Love Textpattern has been a continuing success with a stream of Textpattern powered sites being submitted to the gallery daily. I redesigned this site as the original design was feeling rather stale, and I wanted to experiment with a scrolling horizontal layout. As expected not everyone was happy about this but through tracking visitors statistics with Mint and click tracking with CrazyEgg it has proved a success.
The awesome Spencer Fry from Carbonmade came back and asked me to redesign his personal site at the begining of this year. I was delighted to work with Spencer again after the success of his design magazine Burstoid that we worked on together last year. His personal site proved a welcome challenge to incorporate Spencer’s style and needs with a fresh design, which included more than just a simple blog. Be sure to check out the Timeline and Archive sections.
Posh CSS had been sitting dormant on my server for over 3 months and I had been meaning to keep publishing to it but felt the current design and layout format just simply wasn’t working for me. This weekend I pulled the stylesheet out and redesigned the site live on the server in pure XHTML and CSS (aside from a new logo). This was a refreshing process and from start to finish only took a couple of hours (including an iPhone stylesheet), I think the result was worth the small amount of effort. Expect normal service to resume.
Lastly I wrote a small article for .NET magazine that was published in March 2009’s issue. Be sure to seek that out if you please.
