★ Website re-design, aka Mat goes mad!


Well here it is, Mathew Packer.com v4.x, the re-design that I’ve been working on for the last month. What do you think?

So far I’ve had one comment that is helping me do a few further tweaks to the layout. Vlado commented that it wasn’t that easy to work out what was new content and what was old content, that’s a fair call I think. As an interim ‘patch’ I’ve put in a ‘Latest Articles’ section on the sidebar just below my Vimeo player and some time in the next couple of days I’ll also add in the ‘Most Popular’ and ‘Most Commented’ sections so that should help a little to work out what’s new, what’s popular, etc.

I’m also looking at building in a ‘lifestream’ that will display all the updates to the various social networks I’m involved in, ie. twitter, flickr, vimeo, last.fm, facebook, brightkite, pownce, stumbleupon, digg, etc.

Other than the suggestion Vlado made, are there any other suggestions you would like to make? Let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with.
