Coloring in…

by Mitch on 12/03/2006

So I’ve made some minor updates to the site, most of which are purely cosmetic. Firstly I have changed the color scheme slightly to give the pages a little more life – all the colors are now a lot brighter. I also added in a search feature to the right, along with archives to go back into past entries and some other links to make navigating past entries a lot easier.

I think one of the best things about designing websites is choosing the color scheme and adjusting it to perfection. Without a good color scheme the website will give a totally wrong feel and the site will constantly look out of shape. Generally speaking the mood I am usually sets what color I start off with, but the colors I choose to compliment it will always vary. Since my first ever website I have gone through several color schemes, most of which used a black base. Personally I think the color scheme I am on now is the best I have ever used.

    Once I closed down the Sage bar, I got the whole widescreen effect. Your designs are always interesting. A change is as good as a holiday they say.

    You’ve seen my version of web design and you know I am a simple colour type person myself, however, the blues will always feature somewhere.

    I NEED to learn CSS.

    CSS/PHP/XHTML/Javascript is like oxygen for me 😀
