Amorphous Blob v2.1

After the blog was launched I immediately began working on the next iteration of Amorphous Blob’s design. I applied my newfound knowledge (and WordPress v2.9′s new features) in the creation of the current theme. Here’s a quick rundown of the improvements:

New Header

The new header image promotes our upcoming movie Stop, Rewind. It has much softer colors to prevent distracting users from the content.

Increased Readability

The new layout is loosely based on the 960 grid system, resulting in a much larger content space and an increase in readability. The overall design is also much more visually appealing and consistent.

Cleaner Code

With the experience I gained with the first theme and a clearer idea of the desired features, I was able to keep the code much shorter and cleaner overall.

The site will continue to evolve as time goes on. I hope you all enjoy the new theme and have a happy Valentine’s Day.

Update: I fixed a bug that prevented IE from displaying the page.
