I’d really appreciate your thoughts on this new look for my humble logo design blog.
It was obvious that the design wasn’t in any way similar to my logo design portfolio, so I used a cloud header to make my brand more consistent. I also wasn’t happy that I was using a pretty standard looking template, not far away from the generic Vertigo WordPress theme. One thing about the original theme is how heavy the header and footer appear. I’ve brightened it up and also changed the footer from dark grey to white, helping legibility.
There are some aspects of my blog that I still want to improve. Ilker, author of The Thinking Blog, makes a good point about how my comments section is more difficult to use than it should be. He says that he has to read an individual post, then scroll back to the top to read the comments from top to bottom, then scroll back up if he wants to leave a comment of his own. Not very user friendly, don’t you agree?
Some further tweaks are on the horizon, but for now do you think it’s a step in the right direction?
