Welcome to the new and improved scurker.com! I’d never felt comfortable with my previous design and never really felt inspired by it. There had been some things that I had felt had been missing, and the site lacked a lot of flexibility I was looking for. Shortly after my previous design had been launched, I begin work on this iteration giving time for things to settle in. What has changed?
Standards Are Dead?
Well technically, no. Previously I have been using XHTML 1.0 strict, but have now switched to an HTML 5 doctype, which is simple as
<!DOCTYPE html>. The majority of the features I plan on using are quite usable across most major browsers, so I see little reason not to make the switch.
Thanks to features added with WordPress 3.0, this has given me the ability to update new additions to the portfolio that much easier!
No More Boring Fonts!
Goodbye Trebuchet MS, hello @font-face! Web fonts have wide support in a majority of browsers, so why not take advantage of it? The Google Font API is a great resource for doing so.
This is only a portion of the site as the rest should come around the corner of the holidays. Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions below.
