Every time I visited the site during my recent 15 Every 15 series, I faced a design that looked outdated and mismatched.
We’re entering the holiday season (here in the US that means the cluster of Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, the winter solstice, Christmas, New Year’s, and the like). This is a time for redecorating, contemplating personal appearances, and frantic repairs around the home before relatives arrive. Seems like a fitting time for a new design, right?
I decided to go big with the layout and colors. Either way, this theme offered:
- accessibility features for a better experience on various devices,
- a fixed navigation bar that remains at the top while you scroll, and
- more room for content on the screen.
The current gold, gray, and white color scheme might stick around past January. We’ll see. I also took the opportunity to drop in a new site icon (image in tab bars) and tweak the static pages (available from the top navigation bar).
So, what do you think?
