The current design. I call it “Red Trees” and it’s a mod (a simple one) of “Trees”, which is designed by Christopher Ware.
I’m in love with Trees, which is a theme I’ve used for a couple of months, but I felt I needed to make it more… me.
Let’s get to it, shall we? These are the things that have changed since the original version:
- I’ve made the blog wider. 100 pixels to be exact, not much, but just what I need. This means bigger pictures, which is always good.
- Colors. I’ve gone with black/grey/white for the most part and red for some contrast. I’m sticking with black/white photos for now.
- Changed some fonts. Headlines have increased in size as well.
It looks kind of simple on paper, but actually I’ve spent a good portion of the day tweaking and adjusting tiny things to get it just right. I’ve also made a lot of minor CSS changes here and there, but can’t remember them right now. It’s not like a lot has changed, but enough so that it feels like a fresh start for me and that’s all I wanted. I’m not completely done yet, though, I still need to do something about the navigation, not too fond of it as it is.
Seems I was just here the other day commenting on your site and how beautiful it was then, now it looks even better. I’ve done a little redesigning myself here lately and should have everything ready to go by the end of the week! REALLY Looks Nice! KBGDennis:
Thank you so much for the kinds words, Kimberly.
BubbleBean is looking really good as well, excited to see where you’re taking the design. :-)
