Updated Theme for Summer 2008

Comments 15 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Nursing our bronzed (and slightly pink) skin after a full morning and afternoon at the beach, we sat down to hammer out some final touches on the updated Miss604.com WordPress theme.

New Miss604.com Logo

Over the last week or so John has done the bulk of the leg work to give the site a fresh new look for the summer, adding in some fun elements, softening the look and feel and even managing (somehow) to get me away from my beloved Verdana font.

Hollering PHP language at each other from across the living room we hashed out the final details of this theme that was truly inspired by the lovely header and logo that Raincity Studios created for me this past year.

We hope to have another social media-related announcement coming this week, stay tuned.

    Yeah, I forgot to add/comment to your new theme. The font and design choices are indeed “softer” to the eye. Big ups to you’se two …

    Very classy, and usable, too. My only change would be a slightly larger font size for this comment block. Nice to see a lot of the comment at once, but this tiny font makes it really hard to see what I’m typing… (Have I mentioned that getting old sucks today? &#$&^#$)

    @David – I just noticed that too. Even though I’m getting a new pair of glasses soon I think you’re right, this is a little small hehe. Thanks for the heads up!

    Great job, R! (just the input text on the comment box needs to be a little larger)

  9. RaulMonday, June 30th, 2008 — 2:49pm PDT

    Yeah. Ok. I just tested the new font size for comments. Great work.
