Alphablog Overview

Alphablog header

So 2012 is well underway now. A quarter of the way in already, in fact.

It seems like a good opportunity to remember the shenanigans of the previous year and look back on the Alphablog series I wrote throughout the year.

Eye Strain?

I’ve always loved the look of my black website but never without the nagging feeling it might not be the optimum solution in terms of reading large chunks of text, ie. blog posts.

Some recent feedback has confirmed this to be the case and I’m planning to make some changes. I need to remove as many barriers to people’s reading pleasure, whilst keeping the design consistent and ‘on-brand’. If you’ve ever read a post on my blog (or even if you haven’t) I’d really appreciate your feedback on which way to take it. My two preferred options are to add a lightened panel and making the text black on top of it (option a, below) or just reduce the glare of the high contrast by giving some texture and lightening the background slightly on the blog posts, keeping the text white (option b, below).

Alphablog: an introduction.

So a new year is upon us and it’s nearly time to launch something I’ve been planning for a couple of months now.

The concept of the Alphablog series is to run through the alphabet and cover a variety of different design related themes beginning with each letter. Each article will feature a ‘top ten’ list relating to the theme and will include opinions and analyses which will hopefully be of interest to creatives, clients and everyone else besides! Of course, there will be opportunity to comment or respond with your thoughts or suggestions, and I’m hoping to enlist some help from special guest posters within the series!

Design for Art’s Sake

This is a tongue-in-cheek reference to a lot of the work you see on the many wonderful design inspiration blogs, just for fun of course!
