New layout, coming soon!

January 12th, 2009 – 17 Comments

design previewSo in between all the work on Tweetbacks, the new design for is shaping up nicely. It’s extremely funny, and I love it even when working with a bit longer. It’s a whole lot lighter than the current one, which is a bit dark to my liking, and it’s a lot more me.

design preview 2I’ve outsourced it all this time. I had a designer do the new design, and had do the coding. I’ll only have to touch it up a bit before release.

design preview 3I’ll be testing quite a bit, in line with all the new stuff I’m learning at OrangeValley, and to do that, I’m creating some new plugins, which I’ll be releasing as well, probably on the OrangeValley site. For instance, I’m very curious if the new RSS buttons will convert, I might have to change that quite soon.

Watch this blogs feed and follow me on Twitter, the new layout should be done in about 48 to 72 hours!

    Nice preview. It shows just enough to be interesting, and little enough to be frustrating. :)

    What are you going to do with the old design? Have you considered releasing it as a free/premium WordPress theme? I hate to see a decent design collect dust. I’ve seen a lot of cool designs be scrapped for something equally cool, and occasionally miss the old design.

    Can’t wait to see the final.

    I’m going to be re-designing mine in the next couple weeks. I’ve been so inspired by Jason Santa Maria and the modular-layout-systems, so much more flexibility when it comes to your content.

    Your current design is beautiful, but the light color will be extreme.

    Great things come to those who wait.

    Even greater things come to those who don’t commit to deadlines. ;-)
