As you can see, Good Blimey has a new look and feel. After two days of working on it, and a mere 15 minutes installing the excellent WordPress blogging software, you now see the results of the weekend’s work. If you’re familiar with the previous design (picture here – 166kb), you’ll be shocked by this drastic change. I wanted something that stood out and caught your attention. I know there’s a lot of feminine colors, but hopefully you can look past that as the theme of the site. When designing the site, I asked myself, “What 3 things do you like right now?” and the answer was; women, rockabilly, and food. Then I tried to figure out how to convey that into a design, and this is the result.
As always, the site validates in XHTML 1.0 Strict, and everything should work fine in all major browsers. There are still things I need to fix up, tighten up the layout a bit, and add accessibility features, but they shouldn’t take too long. Feel free to leave me a comment if you want to share anything about the new design.
