Website Redesign: In Progress

I just updated the database and pulled over everything into the new one successfully.  Then added a little jquery pizazz to the menus, and changed the splash page.  I just squeezed this into the last few hours, so I doubt I'm even close to final.

This is a website, not a job site

Check it out and give me some feedback.  I realize that design-wise, I still have a long ways to go.  So treat this as a concept.

Revamping the website is sort of pointless now that I'm a full time carpenter again, but I want to add in my programming and design endeavors somewhere in this site.  At this stage in my life, I should probably start focusing on one single discipline to be an expert in. I'm too disjointed with my skills.

I also know that you, my loyal reader, love your mobile phone. I intend to optimize the site to be cross-platform.  I originally made this website in two weeks before I moved back to philly... having no experience in html, css, javascript, mysql, etc.  At this point, the whole thing is pretty dated.  The underlying portfolio pages need a fresh look as well, but overall, the indexhibit style is DIY and awesome so I may keep it in the same vein, with some slight tweeks and customizations.

Messing with image resizing is so annoying that I don't think I'm going to do this type of cover page ever again!

  1. Looking good man, I'm digging the splash page and general concept! Remind me to pick your brain about awesome tree houses when I decide to go all Thoreau and get out of the city.

    Where are you working these days?
