I Probably Should’ve Done Some Work, But I Did This Instead

Monday 28th March 2011

Engineers aren’t exactly famous for our aesthetic design skills. The joke goes that if engineers were fully responsible for designing the way things look (instead of having architects and the like), all buildings would end up being concrete boxes because that’s functional enough.┬áNevertheless, for reasons that escape me, I’ve always liked doing my own design for my site, despite there being plenty of very nice themes out there that have been made by people who basically know how to make things that look pretty.

I’ve been thinking of freshening the design of the site up for a while, and as you can probably tell (unless you’re reading this in an RSS reader) I’ve now done it. It took a surprisingly little amount of time (as these things go…), as I’ve basically just adapted most of the structure from the old design, but gotten rid of the bits I didn’t like.

Might tweak it again soon. Dunno why I chose green, so I might change that at some point when I get bored of it. And I think it’s a bit sloppy to have a sans-serif font in the header and serif fonts everywhere else, but I can’t be bothered to change it now. Overall, it’ll do for the moment; it all looks cleaner and tidier, and that’s what I was going for.
