re-redesign

  • # December 23, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    Quite a while back, I asked you guys about my business website, Fropac.com, and you guys tore it apart. I finally got around to rebuilding the site. It’s WordPress-based, as are all of my current sites, and I drew inspiration from the Thematic Theme Framework, though I didn’t actually use it. Instead, I built it off of Elliot Jay Stocks’ excellent Starkers theme that Chris so helpfully alluded to in an earlier screencast here on CSStricks, and built it from the ground up to resemble Thematic – though mine only has five widgetized areas as opposed to Thematic’s thirteen!

    Let me know what you guys think: http://www.fropac.com

    i cant remember what the old design was like, but this one isnt bad. Nice, simple article design – i like the use of subtle shading.

    i would seriously consider redesigning your logo though. The font doesnt really give off a good impression to potential clients, and the reflections just dont work

    yea its nice although I would agree with Chazz.

    Even adding some simple bolding techniques would make it look better :) And there was a recent article on PSD Fan about that Here: http://psdfan.com/inspiration/bold-typo … ree-fonts/

    anyway good job :)

    Time for me to go eat more turkey…

    Thank you guys! I’ll work on a new logo, I’ve been using that one for the last 10 years or so, so that’s probably the main reason I stuck it in the design

    Well remember you dont need to make it new, just refresh it :) bring it up to speed with your website. Sometimes its important to keep the Familiararity
