My first attempt at a ‘Web 2.0′ look

If you’re one of the 142 people who have visited my site since its inception last month then you’ve probably noticed that I have changed the theme often. I was trying to find what would fit the times and what I liked at the same time. I spent at least 4 hours on each one that I tried – making a logo, customizing the colors, fonts, etc. This is my latest attempt, and for now I’m happy with it. I went with the web 2.0 look which from what I understand is bright colors, big fonts, big graphics (just my RSS buttons), but nothing too flashy.

I made many of the graphics using Gimp. And, yes, I know they suck. Thats why I do the programming and leave the artistic stuff to graphics designers. I tried some curved divs and a few other tricks, but after hours of looking at it, I kept coming back to this basic design – leaving out all of the super elegant stuff.

I’m sure I need to work another color or two in there somehow, but for now, this is it.

    I have since switched to a new theme. So this post makes no sense any more. 🙂
