A few weeks ago I mentioned I was working on this site’s redesign. After many hours of design and development, I’m happy to show you the new Red Eye Designer. This is the 3rd iteration of the site and I am happy with it so far. I don’t plan on redesigning every 6 months like I have before. This will probably be it for a good while. I don’t consider the site to be “done”, I feel that it is ready for all of you. A few tweaks are coming in the weeks to come. I have some client work that obviously take precedence.
Here are few things I’ve done for the site.
My previous portfolio was a bit static. You had to scroll your way through my projects and I felt like the page was just not cutting it. It was also awful to update. I’ve decided to make the portfolio images bigger and cut some of the content that only made sense if you were in the business of making websites.
Another change was to merge both my Portfolio page with my Services page. This means means less work for a user to get some basic info.
Quicker Load Times
I made it a point to use as little images as possible and minimize the any script that could add to load times. I used CSS to replace the use of images on my site. Nothing to really brag about here.
Not The Same On All Browsers?
I added some cool transitions using CSS 3. However, it will only work on Chrome and Safari. Which I think is fine because visitors who visit my site predominately use those 2 browsers. About 60% combined in fact. If you haven’t already, make sure you try out Google Chrome. It’s fun!
That’s right. You can know reply to specific people in the comments section. Feel free to chat it up!
Mobile Support Coming Soon!
I really wanted to get this done by launch, but I got horribly sick and I’ve had to get started on client work; which is always more important. In the coming weeks I will be adding mobile support to this site. You will notice I added Mobile Support to my services. I figured it was about time. It’s easy enough and the demand is getting higher by the day. A lot of clients have asked if I could hook them up with this and I figure now’s a good a time as any.
I don’t believe a site is ever really “done”. As soon as I am able I will be updating the site making minor tweaks here and there. Of course, any bugs you encounter will be nice know about. Please feel free to send me a message via my contact page.
I’m still getting over whatever bug I got and it’s really starting to annoy me. This cough just won’t go away. I’ll be around. Have a good Easter weekend!
