Woop, new site design. How exciting. The only reason why I’m writing this is so that I can test the said design to the fullest extent. I might as well elaborate on some things in the process. As you may know, this is based upon the wonderful WordPress application and a heavily modified P2 theme. I was reluctant to move over to WordPress, but I’m now way over that and am itching to make some of my own plugins and other extensions like that.
I challenged myself to design a basic site in an hour or less while taking a screenshot every 10 seconds. At what ended up being 1 hour and 9 minutes, I missed my mark – but only by a little bit. Overall, the end result is decent, but nothing spectacular. Given more time I would have probably refined the header section a bit more and spiced up the welcome area. Keeping in mind the time constraints, the simplicity and barrenness can be over looked, in my opinion. Look for the full size image after the jump.
