Reitz Designs Gets A Facelift

Posted in: Articles, Cover Page by preitz on

It was finally time to give this site a new look, and get it organized and cleaned up a bit while I’m at it. Of course I’m only just getting started on this, and it will be an ongoing project for a while. But, suffice it to say, there are going to be a lot of interesting features added to this site. Although this site was built on top of WordPress, a huge majority of it was built from the ground up (and even some of the WordPress core features have been rewritten). There have been a number of plugins that will be brought online in the coming week, so be sure to look for those.

The old site, as pretty as it was, really lacked any real cohesion. So it was time to retire that site and give the site a more up to date look. Before beginning on the design, I spent a lot of time looking at what other sites are doing. I know the over all look of this site is a sort of break away from what most modern blogs and similar sites are doing. This is deliberate. I sort of ignored those sites and paid attention to what the big sites are doing. I looked at Google, Yahoo, Adobe and similar sites. Those are the sites I looked at for inspiration.

And, as I already mentioned, there are going to be new features coming online soon. Why these features aren’t immediately will become apparent once these features go live.

So, thank you for visiting, and be sure to check back to see what is new on this site in the coming week.
