Just a quick note to say that I’m working on implementing the design for my new homepage. It’s waaaay more complicated than I expected, and I’m having to tackle it in layers, learning the CSS and HTML as I go. I’ve been sitting here with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Web Design in a Nutshell (fantastic reference, btw), and a couple of HTML/CSS books for three hours now, trying to figure things out. So far I’ve got one repeating background image and a page full of layout sketches. Slow progress, but a fascinating puzzle to unlock.
Just in case anyone’s wondering, here’s the comp for my new homepage (click the image to load the full-screen version). It’s a lot more complex than it looks – if you’re a professional web designer, I could use some hints about how to carve up and float the divs to get the right overlap. Otherwise, I’ll work it out. 🙂
No time for anything else right now – my goal is to get this implemented by the end of the weekend, or at least mid next week. Time for a crash course!
