I’m Not Worthy

I get back from running errands, and all of a sudden I notice this site got a nice mention on Signal vs. Noise – which happens to be the blog of the absolutely brilliant Web 2.0 pioneers 37signals. This, for a web design nerd like myself, is about as cool as it gets.

The liked the way I use print-style headers on the site, which is good since it took many iterations before I got them the way I liked. Georgia looks fantastic in high contrast, larger sizes, and a slight decrease in letter spacing. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to online typography, which is why I spend months tweaking text, colors, and layout on this design – and I’m not entirely sure I’m totally happy with it yet. Then again, part of the “getting real” philosophy of design is the willingness to make iterations over time.

And as a nod back to 37signals, if you’ve never tried Backpack, Basecamp, or any of their other ingenious and nimble little web apps, you’re missing out. Especially for small businesses, these tools are inexpensive, very flexible, and incredibly fast.

  1. A comment about display of this blog…

    At least on Firefox, the text appears at the absolute far left edge of the page. No margin whatsoever on the left side. Makes it a little harder to read. Just one reader’s opinion.

  2. I don’t know if this is deliberate or not, but in the style.css file, Georgia is spelled as Geogia (no ‘r’) in both the “.post .postbody .h2” and “.post .postbody .h3” entries.
