Should have written this a few days ago, but as you’ve no doubt noticed, the Darren Nolan website has gotten a real design now! One I absolutely love and promise not to change for at least 3 months.
So sporting in this fantastic new theme designed by my ever so talented flat mate Karl Short who works at Always Interactive, is a really cool Page Not Found 404 Error Page – because every personal website requires more black holes, folding sidebar (for viewers of screens less than 960px) and a temporary Mobile version of this site. Which can be found by going to mobile.darrennolan.com on your handset or down the bottom of every page is a “Switch to Mobile Theme” link.
There was a couple of challenges when taking Karl’s designed Photoshop document into HTML/CSS which was mainly little things like the bar beside every article document. Basically the header tag has bottom border colour and I cheated (after many failed attempts at work-arounds) by giving the actual link a black underline and moving it over the top of the border.
The pages on the left will continue to be fixed up (Services and Pricing) when I have some more free time, unless I find a fantastic company to sell my soul to on a permanent basis. At present they’re simply blank.
I do have full intentions for the GST Calculator lovers (all
8,000+ 4,500+ (9,000+ views) of you that visit every month) to make the form a little easier to use now that we’ve switched from a white/light theme to a black/dark theme.
Again, all in due time when I become available to myself.
So – I hope you love the new design – leave some comments and feedback or a simple “I LOVE YOUR WORK” message, I always get a smile from those – even if I don’t get a chance to reply back to your message – know that I’ve read and appreciate your kind words.
I still have a couple of posts I’m ever so slowly working on, namely SEO – which I still continue to recieve emails about. I will make that post, it’s always just a matter of timing in my day.
