Fudgegraphics got a new look

Over the last months I’ve been busy working on the redesign of fudgegraphics and today it is finally live. As many of you know personal designs are the hardest to do because we are never truly happy and always want to make it look that more special. Hence it takes longer than expected.

So what’s new then?

The logo hasn’t changed much, after all it is the most important branding tool and I want people to still recognize the site. Same goes for the overall colour scheme, although I switched to brown tones to compliment the blue.

The main differences are the comments which got a complete new design. The social links in the sidebar now feature the fantastic icons made by Function.

Last but not least there’s finally a proper footer in place, new home to the Flickr User Showcase and Icon Blogroll.

What Now?

While the redesign is finished I’m sure there will be minor changes along the way. As I said, one is never truly satisfied and hence I know that I’ll make some changes eventually.

If you encounter any bugs or issues with the new theme please let me know. Leave a comment or use the contact box. It would be great if you could specify which browser/OS your using.
Note: If you’re using an old version of IE chances are the design will be messed up. I recommend you get rid of that horrific browser and download Firefox or Safari right now!

  10. I’m impressed with the header and footer. The post and sidebar looks a bit understyled, I think you’ve either got tired/lazy about it or are stil working on it :)

    And the logo looks even better on the pattern background.

  11. @Sumesh: it’s a bit of both. At some point I just wanted to release the theme. As I mentioned this will be a work in progress and I’m sure there will be some changes the future. First thing that comes to mind is to redesign the “Promote Area”.

  12. clap clap !
    Better than before.
    Great Job, I like the background texture

  18. Hey! Nice design. I really like blending of that cool floral pattern and the grungy texture at the top and in the footer here. This is my first time to this site, so I can’t really comment on the new design in relation to the old, but I like what I see. Good work!

  19. Fabulous website! In the process of a complete redo of mine using WP Thesis 1.6. This helps inspire me!
