Tweaks all over the place

the tasselflower blog August 2013

And again I decided to change things around the blog and my work site. This new look has been waiting to get finalized and published since July and I think it's worth the wait.

Both sites have the same base look. At the work site, Made In Helmikuu, the sidebars are mostly missing, which makes content wider. On the blog I kept the sidebars for the wider screens. That's because blog is meant to be read more and reading very wide texts is slow.

Made In Helmikuu August 2013 -- the tasselflower blog

The new style is very clear. As you may have noticed I like to use textures and that's what I did this time as well.

I also added dropdowns to some parts of the menu. This is to save space and keep it clean, cause there are so many items there.

I'd be very grateful if you told me in case you find something that doesn't work. So, what do you think?

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Ja taas päätin muuttaa asioita blogissani ja työsaitillani. Tämä uusi ulkoasu on odottanut viimeistelyä ja julkaisua heinäkuusta asti ja mielestäni se on odotuksen arvoinen. Molemmilla saiteilla on sama perusulkoasu. Työsaitilla, Made In Helmikuu, sivupalkit puuttuvat enimmäkseen. Tämä tekee sisällöstä leveämpää. Blogissa pidin sivupalkit leveimmille ruuduille. Tämä siksi, että blogia on tarkoitus lukea enemmän ja tosi leveän tekstin lukeminen on hidasta. Uusi tyyli on selkeä. Kuten olet varmaan huomannut, tykkään käyttää tekstuureja ja näin tein nytkin. Lisäsin myös alasvetoja joihinkin valikon kohtiin. Näin säästän tilaa ja pidän valikon siistinä, koska siinä on aika paljon kohtia. Olisin tosi kiitollinen, jos kertoisit löytäessäsi mahdollisia toimimattomuuksia. Niin, mitäs tykkäät?
