Website Facelift: Style Upgrade

Now that things have calmed down after the rush of trying to get the website online as quickly as possible, I finally have some free time to spend on whatever I wish. As it turns out, the next step for me is obvious: spending that aforementioned time improving my pre-existing HTML/CSS skills.

What good is creating a website if you don’t intend to also master the art in the process? Further still, shouldn’t everyone seek to master their arts and revisit their past works to improve upon them? One should never let their knowledge and skills stagnate as this does nothing more than cause the mind to rot in time.

After a week of practice and little sleep, it’s time for me to put these new skills to the test by revisiting this website so that I may perform a complete facelift — shifting it up to the next metaphorical gear. I’ve opted to expand upon the existing color scheme, but increase the amount of blue so that the website doesn’t look so depressively dull and grey. I think that adding additional colors would be a great idea, but that will be for another time.

The resulting completed style upgrade is a simple seventy-eight lines of CSS that touches upon the most visually-impacting areas of the website. I might have spent the entire restless night finding the right balance, but the result is well worth the effort.

Feel free to leave any comments you like on areas of the website that you’d like to see visual improvements on. I can’t guarantee that I can implement every idea, but when I have time I can try to implement things one step at a time as I go along. If you’re not allowed to make a comment due to the silly pay-wall then you can still pass me an email at mmstickman@gmail.com.

Hopefully Apple won’t sue me for using rounded edges.
