New look Devil's Kitchen Design.
As I have been applying for jobs, I have been engaged in overhauling my Devil's Kitchen Design portfolio site recently. I spent Thursday night totally reskinning the site, and I think that it's looking pretty (good).
I now need actually to get more of my work up there—a task I have been dreading. I have about 500GB of files on my assorted hard drives, in various applications. Just opening the files is a nightmare: almost every file requires me to track down and activate fonts, relink images and, in some cases, convert files from legacy formats.
Add to that the fact that most of this stuff was designed for print before the web became anywhere near ubiquitous and you have a task of mind-numbing tedium for mixed results (how can you represent metallic ink, embossing or foil-blocking on the web, eh? Especially when you don't have finished printed samples anymore).
Still, comments on the reskinning welcome—especially IE6 issues (it's acceptable in IE7)—and, since my design site used the same look as this blog, the question now stands: should I port the look over to The Kitchen?
