Fudgegraphics Redesign v7 Thumbnail

It’s been a long time coming, 18 months to be precise, Fudgegraphics presents itself with a shiny new look.

News: Fubiz Redesign

Fubiz_Logo
Fubiz.net was one of the first blogs I subscribed to when I got into the designer blogging world. It is run by Romain and offers the latest inspirational designs and videos. The content is available in French and English. And did I see they are an infinite source of inspiration?

Secondly the way the new design is presented is incredible. Instead of showing simple screenshots of the new vs. old site they made a video. This is an original and creative concept that I had to share it with you. So here goes:
