To celebrate my move to a superior operating system (too early for the fangirling?) I hereby release my latest layout. It’s got blue, it’s got ninjas, it’s got icons, a gradient, syndicated feeds… it must be some sort of web 2.0 mish-mash hodge-podge?!
I’m trying out some new things with this latest creation. For starters, it was made in GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). I’ve never really played with it before, so consider this an excellent first attempt, and a demonstration that GIMP is certainly up to the job of replacing Photoshop in a personal dev. environment.
I’m also using the 960 grid system (12 column grid). It provides a basic structural framework to build your site on, allowing for multiple columns of multiple sizes without bloating the crap out of your main stylesheet. If you’re already familiar with floats and good CSS design, it’s definitely worth playing with.
So, I like it, what about you?
