As you might have noted, this blog has a new design since a week or 2. Not the standard WordPress layout, but a funky yet tasteful design. Took me about 4 hours to get this done.
Of course I didn’t do the visual design myself. The design of the blog is inspired by the design for my corporate web site that I was working on lately. This great work was done by my friend Johan van der Woude from Studio Joyo. So last week I finished everything, and my D17.nl corporate web site as officially been launched. After running my freelance business for 5 months with a web site place holder (formally know as Under Construction page), now finally I have a decent web site. The timing was good, as quite recently my first freelance project went live, www.kpnglasvezel.nl. It’s a site by the biggest telco in the Netherlands KPN supporting their new product, fiber connections at home.
I build it of course In Java, using just Hibernate. I created my own very SEO-friendly filter to retrieve pages from my custom CMS (only contains pages, which have 3 text fields, that’s it:)). Still thinking about a mobile version, but the site already looks good on my Nokia N95, and I think the Iphone does even do a better job at displaying it.
So what do you think about the new site? let me know.
