New Rubinary

Rubinary DesignAfter many more evenings and sleepless nights I’m actually very excited to introduce a new version of the blog design.

As you can see I’ve reused several elements from the design that I have decided to scrap, but everything else is brand new. I for one am very happy with the end result. It’s a far superior product compared to the one that I decided not to use.

I would very much like to hear your opinions about this. Things you like, things you don’t like, compliments and constructive criticism, if you notice some glitches or problems. Everything is welcome. I hope you’ll take a couple of moments and leave a comment.

On the tech side of things I want to say that this is my first site with no tables. Everything is done through CSS. Firefox is a great browser, and if you’re not using it yet, you should switch. IE on the other hand took hours upon hours to get right. Also not a single pixel was “borrowed” from somebody, 100% of work was done by me.

Anyhow, as I said, I’m very happy with the end result and I’m waiting for your comments!

Design That Will Never Be

Rubinary v1I spent all my nights and weekends of the past week or two on a new design for the site. I felt it was about the right time to refresh the blog style and make something with the new domain name in mind.

First I built a concept in Photoshop. After I was happy with it I cut the images and put down some code. I haven’t used a single table and did everything using CSS. Now that the site is pretty much done, with the exception of small details I find it that I’m liking it less and less.

I’ve been contemplating killing the redesign for the past 2 days, while trying to improve some of the things that I didn’t like. Now I’ve made the decision. The final product is not good enough. Not my kind of thing I guess.

I figured I’ll post the screenshot of whole thing anyway, considering how much time I spent on it.
