Facelift in preparation for MIX08

The New LookFinally, after much promising but little doing, I found the time to redesign the Pink & Yellow Media Blog from the bland WordPress theme to something a little more suiting.

I figured since I’m going to MIX08 in Vegas and just got a pile of new flashy cards printed there’s a good chance people will be stopping by to see what I’m saying so I should really make an effort to give a good first impression. I hope this will suffice.

The graphics were made using a multitude of software including Illustrator (for the swooshy lines), PhotoShop (for the lens flare) and Expression Design. Once completed I chopped it all up in Design and used Expression Web to reformat the theme to fit the new look. All in all the entire process took around 8 hours with php re-coding.

Drop me a line and tell me what you think!
