Things Look…Different

Pub(lishing) Crawl Logo 320So…as you might noticed, PubCrawl looks…different today.

We have some changes being implemented around here, one of which is a website redesign. On the front end, the reader experience should be improved with cleaner, minimalistic layout and good typography, while on the back end, the posting process should get streamlined for us.

In theory.

Your humble self has undertaken the task of updating PubCrawl’s design to take advantage of mobile reading devices as well as the desktop screen. Read it on your phone or tablet! No really! And then tell me if it looks okay. PubCrawl 2.0 is still very much in beta, but we don’t want to deprive our readers of content any longer than necessary, so click around. The posts are still there (formatting will be, uh, a little helter-skelter for some of them until the clean-up crew—i.e. me—goes in there and tidies things up).

If the blog looks a teensy bit (okay a lot bit) like a hack job at the moment…that’s probably because it is. Sort of. (I’m self-taught.) However! It should not remain this way for long. Based on your feedback, I can make changes as necessary, so please leave comments and let us know what you think, what you miss, what you’d like to see.

Thanks for your patience!

    Love the new look! But the text is a bit hard to read, letters seem really thin/light (chrome browser on windows)

      Thanks for letting me know! I’ll work on that.

    I like it! It’s easy to read, and I like the button. I also tend to like light backgrounds and uncluttered sites. Nice job 🙂

      When we were talking about the redesign, that was one of the things we wanted! A more pub-like logo 😉 JJ did such an awesome job!

    Reading this on chrome on my android phone, this is SO much more readable on mobile for me, I love it!

    Love the new logo! But is there a way to make the background of the blog post part slightly different from the rest of the page? Kind of how the color background varies between the comments to make it easier to differentiate them.
