New Website Design

Today I’m very pleased to announce the new design of my website! I put a lot of effort into making it clean and feature-rich at the same time. My goal was to reduce the number of distracting elements while keeping the functionality of the old site.

The blog posts are now a lot easier to read. Font size is larger and the sidebar has been removed. I also redesigned the photography page. Larger images now make use of the full screen size. I’m using the fancyBox JavaScript library as before but I tuned it a lot to better present the photos.

Here are some impressions comparing the old design with the new one:

Old

New

I wanted to utilize modern technologies and elements for both, the front-end and the back-end:

Of course, the website is completely responsive and should look equally good on various devices.

In addition to the new design I also put a lot of effort into making the site as fast and small as possible. I applied several techniques such as image compression or HTML and CSS minification to reduce the number of HTTP requests and bytes that have to be transferred before a web page can be displayed.

I hope you like the new site! Enjoy your stay!
