New Site

Postby Project Willow » Tue Jun 12, 2012 4:23 am

I know we have lots of geeks on this forum, and I wanted to say I've just finally caught up to the latest web design coding changes, well, to the best of my ability at this point.
I've implemented my new knowledge into a new art website with full background images.

I've also used some brand new technology in places, which you might notice if you use a modern browser, or if you know front-end coding. Please check it out and comment on my brief blog post about where we are now. I'd like to hear from others. http://lynnschirmer.com/

The bit I left out was, who's going to coalesce all the new changes, and all others not yet delineated, into a universally usable OS?
Anyone who guesses will make herself very, very wealthy. That's what I surmise anyway.

Anyone who even understands "the latest web design coding changes" has already earned my respect.

Cheers on your new site, PW.

Hi, PW. Your site has gotta be the new elegance for viewing on hand held devices. I really like your touch to beauty with the feel of floating. I remember seeing your site a few years back, and I always wondered, ‘How does she DO that?!’
Like I’m an artist :bigsmile.

I’ve read through what I think is your entire site twice during the last few days, and I got inspired to pull over to this thread a shot of the home page. What I’ve enjoyed are the not-squarish paper images with shadow. Sorry, I don’t have better words to describe those features. Oh, I know. The corners of the paper are slightly bent, so the corners are not 90 degree angles. That touch is what I love!

When the beautiful and what I thought were elegant websites began to be template replaced with big and little squares and rectangles displaying this and that, I threw my hands in the air! I just didn’t like what was happening to web design: all corporate minded, and now you say, machine languaged design. Oh well. Mind you, I’m not a geek; I only love to see pretty things and orderliness on the screen. And, you’ve put better on the screen than I can properly describe.

While reading the site and clicking here and there, I found some links that might need your attention, if you’ve not already noted them.

All good things to you and
those closest to you—
and of course your projects!
~ A.

Thanks Allegro! You've done more thorough testing than I. :hug1:

That last url, it is a deep mystery as to why it behaves differently than all the others. That probably means it's just a tiny typo I can't see, but yeah, I tried to figure it out to no avail. That long ago article is indeed posted on the web somewhere.

Yea!!!

As a web designer, I always wanted one of my designs to make it on a showcase.

Really like the new layout except one thing... Fwiw, having the avatars on the right is really distracting somehow. Maybe it's from reading left to right but having the pix over on the right, i feel like i'm constantly distracted every time i finish reading a line... Almost like one of those annoying flashing ads on mainstream websites. Otherwise, i find the new layout easy on the eyes and very attractive. Thanks.
