New Blog Design!

*and everything was still*

This blog redesign was painfully long over due. No more giant Lisa header. Yay!! Thank you so much to my tap tap tap colleagues for whipping this up in a few days.

Designed by the incomparable Wolfgang Bartelme, who did all the amazing design work for Camera, both in-app and all the promo pages. He obviously used my love of bokeh as a theme and I couldn’t be more happy with this design.

WP Theme, coding and moral support by Scott Meinzer, who gave up hours of sleep and trips to the Cheescake factory to finish my blog.

I feel really inspired to start filling this blog with more photos, video and a lot more love than I’ve given it in the past few months. Hope you like it as much as I do!

    Looks great Lisa. Nice piece of work. Not being a programmer I’d like someone technically minded to explain what you used to get to this point. Is it all CSS or is it written in something cleverer?

    Still, lovely look.

    Hallo Lisa!

    For a great photographer as you are, your blog shouldn’t be different from how has been redesigned!

    I really like the theme and the color scheme. Nice usage of the new CSS3 features as well.

    Keep up with the great work! ;)

    Love it! As you say, Lisa, this redesign was overdue, but it’s awesome. :D
    Very modern, clean and easy on the eyes.

    it’s obvious that it resents both bartelme’s and your style.
    cool, loved the css3 tricks.

    there are some glitches though, Yanone Kaffeesatz doesn’t look perfect in chrome win7. (firefox renders this font much better)

    by the way, there was one more re-design with a tiny header — before you switched back to old huge mostly design — what happened to it ?

    The choice of the different blues is quite easy on the eyes. Love the “orbs”
    in the header.

    Some reason, my comment never made it the first time.
    Just wanted to let you know that the font rendering on Chrome for Windows with this new theme is not good at all. Looks very pixelated. Chrome for Mac,Firefox or Safari for either everything looks just fine.

    Great new design!

    My only quibble is a lack of search. Because you have such useful tips and anecdotes for beginner photographers like myself, I often come here to look for things that I might want to try. So being able to search for “off-camera” flash or “portraits” is pretty valuable to me (and I’m sure to others as well).

    As always, keep up the good work.

    I like the ABOUT section in the right hand corner plus the simple design.

    There is go flow of information unlike many tech blog that crowd stuff onto a page.
