After a couple of days locked away in the office after work I’ve relaunched one of the first websites I built and designed.

One of my all time favourite Family Guy gags in typographic poster form:
Microsoft has finally released Internet Explorer 9 to the word today, hopefully instigating a final push to banish its despicable older brother, Internet Explorer 6, forever (China – 34.5% of you still using IE6? Get with the program!)

Sad to the see the old design go – when I first stumbled across the site a couple of years back it really opened my eyes as to what was possible with web design and inspired me in a number of my early designs. For my money, Web Designer Wall was the best of the handcrafted/watercolour/sketchy-looking sites that were so ubiquitious a few years ago as designers reacted against the shiny/reflected aesthetic of web 2.0.
Like I said, sad to see it go, but the new design retains the spirit of the original whilst incorporting some modern web tech including HTML5 , media queries and CSS3. Check it out!
I have been extremely slack updating this blog since I wound down the freelance stuff and started working full time a few months ago, so imagine my surprise when I logged in today and found I had 365 comments awaiting moderation – most of them spam. Why would the spam bots be bothering with little old me? My intrigue roused, I checked Google Analytics to discover this site had been included in a Smashing Magazine article!! – Ultimate Guide to Using WordPress as a Portfolio . Thank you Smashing – I am officially chuffed (if drowning in spam).
