anything you want can be yours at any time

new site theme is up and running!

i’m sure i forgot something so if you see any errors… lemme know (my qc guy is in town, but i’m excited to roll out with this)

not like you care, but this is hugely different than the previous theme i had (white with the red line at the top)… this one has a bit more color in it and a few more elements that i’ve picked up recently

to start, the main logo is a transparent png with a rollover AND it degrades nicely if you’re using a shitty browser like ie6…

tranny ping (not some gay dood in china)

so it’s one image, and the css switches the image when you roll over it… this method is pretty cool and super easy to pull off. the end result is clean and it loads quick!

then there’s the overall color scheme… i wish i was better at color theory, but i’m not. so i gotta do research on colourlovers for inspiration. i knew i wanted a “web 2.0” (ugh) color scheme and i think i did it…

another thing that’s cool is the footer — i knew i wanted to do a design with a 3 column footer… i’ve seen kids these days doing it so i wanted to join that crew… i moved the archive list down here, put a short little bio (that’s a first for me), put the social networking sites, and re-added my signature in the copyright

i really like logos… especially when they’re sharp… thanks to the interwebs, i was able to find a set of illustrator vectors of the social networking site logos. so i was able to resize them down without losing quality… i used the rollover styling here as well

tranny gif this time...

and to celebrate, i’ll throw in a song… it’s actually a song i just learned on guitar — it’s SUPER simple even andy could prolly play it

it’s jason mraz’s “anything you want” off his live cd – “beautiful mess: live on earth” (hulu)

    i like the new fav too. why in the footer are your socials different sizes?

    im a big fan of the footer, i just wish it wasnt so far down the page. i wanna see it. maybe try that footer code we’ve been chatting about

      Good question.. I could either make them the same width or same height. I chose the latter…

      Oooh good point… I like the footer too — I’ll tinker with that code

    • Joey says:

      so i tried it out on my dev machine and since the footer has so much girth (like that?) it’ll take up half the screen if you have a small res screen… which looks obnoxious

      that fixed footer would work if there’s a little bar of content (perhaps a nav bar?)
