SimpleBits Redesigns, Internet Speechless

Dan drops another gorgeous bomb on his corner of the internet, redesigning with a whole host of subtle details and—can it be?—a fluid grid. Be sure to poke around; there are a lot of great little details throughout the new design, and the IA is a thing of beauty.

Congratulations, sir. Consider the hat doffed in your general direction.

    You know I forgot how nice it is to read blog posts on people’s actual blog until I abandoned my feeds altogether after they got out of control.

    Anyhow, I like the subtle but elegant refinement of Mr. Cederholm’s new site, and I’m also really digging how you show screen shots in your posts.

    I hear you, Beth. I keep paring back my feeds, but the number never seems to stay down. She largely relies on a folder of bookmarks that she checks once daily—I’ve been thinking about reverting to something like that.

    I’m also really digging how you show screen shots in your posts.

    Hey, thank you! I’m going to try a few other formats at some point, but that’s good to hear. Feedback is always, always welcome.

    Thanks Ethan, Dan’s redesign is seriously smooth. I came to URN via ALA article by you on fluid grids, and found the above.

    Mr Invisible’s Remix was wild.

    Kudos to you, and DC, for the brilliance you continue to grace us with.

    Seeing the transformation of Dan’s site over the years has been a privilege. This newest version is “wicked awesome!” As is your incantation.

    I’m putting the example from the fluid grids article over at ALA that you wrote into a WordPress theme I am working on. With your permission of course.

    Now that I have said many large quadrisyllabic words, I need to lie down.

    Todd, I’d love to hear more about how that theme shapes up, even though I’m not a WP user anymore. Good luck!
