Re-Make, Re-Model, Revisited

August 6, 2010 · 8 comments

It’s been a little more than a year since I last updated the appearance of the blog. It was beginning to feel cramped and claustrophobic, so I went for the look you see here. The gray background is gone, the outer and inner borders have been removed, and the text column has been widened. I think it looks cleaner, and it will allow me to use slightly larger photos. The challenge there, of course, is stepping up my photography skills to merit the increased real estate.

I’ll work with this new look for about a week, but will probably wind up making a few more tweaks until it feels right. Constructive criticism is welcome in the comments.

Design tard. Is that constructive enough? 😉

Because I can work a “wicked” and a “frickin'” in there if it’s not constructive enough.

Looks great, but I have to confess that the first thing I did when I saw this post was check to see if you’d got rid of those infuriating link hover screenshot preview things…

I just got rid of those hover things. They were starting to bug me, too.

Who are you? I don’t recognize your address or web site.

I’ll be happy with your blog as long you continue to feature pork belly.

Pork belly is a content feature, not a design feature.

Looks good, I agree with the clean comment. And thanks for removing the pop up links. 🙂
