Together with the launch of my portfolio, I decided this site needs a visual facelift as well. So here it is. I know redesigning isn’t as hip as realigning, but the changes are just too much.
I’ve ditched the three-column layout and used two columns (or even one) throughout the site. The footer is three-column though, and it has all the navigation elements to make it more useful. Colour-wise, I’ve tried to get the best of both the dark and light version of the previous version of this website, and of course incorporated the new logo. Furthermore, I bumped up the base fontsize to 12px Verdana (scalable, of course, in every browser). If that’s not enough for your , try the font-size controls next to the logo, which bump the base font size up to 18px. Finally, I’ve made sure that the main text has enough contrast, which goes a long way to a more accessible website.
All in all, I think this design greatly simplifies the website and makes it consistent in brand with the portfolio. It also creates a softer and friendlier face, despite the brown colour palette. What do you think?
