Redesign

After staring at my site for 2 years, and needing some serious procrastinatory work, I decided to redesign overstated.net. My goal was to remove as much of the cruft as possible from the interface and focus on the readability. My main inspiration were Tufte, hence the use of whitespace in layout and small caps for various typographic functions. There’s also quite a bit of Dean Allen in there too because he’s the man when it comes to weblog layout.

The image in the header of the page was ganked from a 17th century map by Fredrick de Wit. I had originally intended to use one of Jesuit scientist Athanasius Kircher’s engravings, but this king was too badass to pass up.

Let me know what you think and of course if you encounter any bugs

  1. Thanks for posting this, It?s just what I was researching for on bing. I?d a lot relatively hear opinions from an individual, barely than a company web web page, that?s why I like blogs so significantly. Many thanks

  2. .) I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
