With all of the changes going on in my industry, the improvement and exceedingly common use of responsive design techniques, and my general evolution as a web developer I needed to take a leap forward on my personal site. Hard to sit back and see all that was changing, see my own skill as a developer improve, and not do something. The problem has always been time.
I’ve been sitting on this redesign since at least November, and have scrapped many an iteration since then, but the holiday season kept me busy, and quite frankly I was never going to finish this unless I just launched the thing.
So in all it’s glory this is what it is for now. I’ll be making several changes as I go, improvements in the details, making sure I get everything right, because right now, it’s a hot mess, and adding back a lot of important functionality that I’ve not included in this theme just yet.
This site is tentatively responsive, but not everything plays nicely at this time. I’ll get there, I’m new to this. I’ve based the grid on Joni Korpi’s Golden Grid System, and it’s been modified slightly to accommodate my needs. A lot of my needs, unfortunately, made creating a workable grid kind of tough, but it works mostly.
I have a lot of modification to go through on older posts once I get to adding my archive links and search. I stupidly used a hacky grid in the old layout.
Well, take a look around, let me know what you think.
