Weekly Wrap: The Redesign

Advertisement

It’s 3:49 AM as I am writing this post. I just recently came up with a new format that I would like to start here on Design Informer and it is called "Weekly Wrap." Every weekend, I will be writing a post about the best and most interesting articles/tutorials/reviews/freebies of the week. But the only difference from this and the other similar posts from the other blogs is that mine will not be in list form, but it will follow an article format. Oh, and I forgot, I will also be inserting little tidbits here and there about how my week went and what I got accomplished, etc. So anyway, here it goes.

The Weekly Wrap

This past week, I finally came out from hibernation and published a new post which was about running a design business. By the way, the post was written by Duane Kinsey. The reason for the long pause on the blog was because I was busy with work, freelance projects, and I was redesigning my personal portfolio. It took me about two and a half weeks to finish the redesign. Could it have been because I stink at design? Oh, and did I mention that I also played around with transparency on my new website? You can see an example of it here. I also used CSS3 to connect the dots on my site. I am a little curious if my CSS renders efficiently and whether or not I’m using the best-practices with my coding?

Website Redesigns

I’m not the only one who redesigned my site though, Brian Hoff completely revamped his site as well. Apparently, Mr. Collis Ta’eed noticed that this was redesign week because he also redesigned Creattica.

WordPress Logo

Anyway, enough about redesigns, let’s talk a little bit about the community. If I remember correctly, there was a great "how to" article that I read about moving your WordPress site. Since we are on the subject of websites, let me as you a question. "Is your website responsive?" Here’s another question for you to think about. Are All Graphic Designers Logo Designers? So which of the two questions do you prefer to answer?

Well, I just want to wish WordPress a Happy 7th Birthday. I’ll end it with that.

Until next week, that’s a wrap!

    Hi Jad,

    I like this way of writing a wrap up, much more personal. It’s also nice that it’s short, usually everything I read are the longer articles these days, short ones like these are cool. Looking forward to your upcoming weekly posts.

    Good idea but i think it will catch up with you later, i also wanted to do the same thing. I did Best of the Week, on inspirationfeed.com a combination of new great webdesigns, tweets, web 2.0 tools and articles. Sounded like a great idea to me but, soon i found out i didn’t have the time, and work was in the way. But don’t let me discourage you, if you have free time on your hands this will workout nicely.

    Nice little wrap up, Jad. I’m liking short, to the point posts lately as well. Nice work on the redesign of your site. The new Design Cubicle is so good. The new Creattica is nice, but I’m not sure I like the fixed header too well. I know it’s supposed to increase usability but it kinda drives me nuts.

    Looking forward to more of these. Keep it up!
