JonLin.es gets a redesign

Jul 27, 2014

I was lazy when I first launched this website. I built v1 of this site without any prior design. I ended up spending a lot more time than necessary doing small tweaks everywhere just because the design was not set in stone before development began.

Then Sketch 3 was released, and suddenly designing became so much easier. (Photoshop was too complex for me and I never got around to learning it.) I used Sketch to design this entire website before writing any HTML or CSS.

Before

After

And so here it is. Hosted on AWS, and powered by the Middleman static website generator, alongside uikit the CSS framework and Font Awesome for some nice social icons.

Hopefully I'll now be able to get down to some serious writing!
