Spring Cleaning in Fall: A New Techie Buzz Theme
By on September 10th, 2009

Over the past few years we have had the same motto. That hasn’t changed. However, I must state once again that "change is constant" and we will always strive for constant improvement. That’s one reason why we try to make everything easier for our readers.

We do this by making changes to the website over and over again. This time around I decided to dirty my hands and do a redesign of the theme for better navigation and content presentation.

I am not a designer per se, but I do dabble a bit in it whenever it is worthwhile. I spent a few hours doing some thinking and designing to come up with a new theme for the site. It has hints of the original theme, but I have tried to keep the content more readable. You can take a look at it in the screenshot below or browse the newly created theme.

Although there are still things that might need tweaking and changing, I depend on your feedback to further improve the theme. Please feel free to browse it and let me know if you want to see any changes in it.

Your suggestions and feedback is highly appreciated and like always the comment form is open for you.

    Hi Keith,

    Most of the sections and typography are similar to old theme. The main change I feel is the home page which has refined to the best. I loved the design. I found few flaws which I tweeted for you to have a look at…

    Congrats for the new theme :)

    Great work Keith! But I somehow find the green color on top a bit too dull, but really nice use of Netvibes widgets on the homepage

    New look is much faster and fresher than the old one. But I still prefer something like:
    - Adding a border for the page.
    - Changing the color of the top most bar.
    - A change in the font of the navigation bar.

    Looks good. Wouldn’t it be ‘Summer cleaning’ though, since it just ended?
