Creative Nerds Fresh New Site Redesign
- April 12th, 2010
The time has come where we have finally decided to release the brand new fresh Creative Nerds design. In the article we discussed why we decided to redesign Creative Nerds and discussed some of the changes which have been made to the new design.
Redesigning a blog is one of hardest decisions you can make and face as a blogger. In my personal opinion if your designing and coding a blog from start to finish yourself it can be a very time consuming process and a big decision to make because a new design can either broaden your site across to a wider audience or could even do the complete opposite loose a lot of readers because of the new design layout, features or functions of the new blog which have been implemented.
Heres a screen of what Creative Nerds use to look like, Just to give you a reminder of the old design.
The overall redesign was implemented just to give the overall design a more fresh new up to date look. Below we discussed aspects of site which we have brought up to date and gave a fresh new look as well the new features and future changes/updates.
We was previously using just a simply cream colour as the background for the old creative nerds design, we have now decided to use red bokeh background as the background image which defiantly attracts readers attention because of vibrant colours chosen in the design.
The previous footer design to be brutally honest was ugly and the colours didn’t work as well as we originally thought. The new footer design we tried to select colours which worked well together with the overall design and focused more attention to detail.
In the old Creative Nerds we wanted to implement so many features to Creative Nerds to the point where it began to get very cluttered, therefore with the new design we have freed up a lot of space in order to make more space available for future further features/extensions which we may considered implementing in the future.
Hosted on faster new server
Creative Nerds has been made allot faster ever since we decided to moved it over to a new server over at Media temple, therefore it’s a lot faster for navigating through Creative Nerds while reading various articles throughout the blog.
More coming soon
We will be making more minor tweaks to the new design in the upcoming months so be on the lookout for any tweaks and new features which may be added to the new design.
