New Website Design

I'd been growing a bit weary of my website design for a while now.  I figure after six years of the same old site, a redesign might be in order.  I wanted to get away from the clutter and go for a clean, simple, and straightforward design - http://phyllishornungpeacock.com/.  There are a few pieces of art in the gallery that I've never posted online before, but most of it was either on my site previously and/or posted on this blog.  The new design is very visually spare compared to my old design, but hopefully that will only help to not distract from the art itself.  Plus it has this cute little animated bird (who's looking a wee bit blurry here...):
Also, I set up a Facebook page for my work if anybody prefers to follow in that fashion.  Facebook seems like it might be a better place for interaction than these standard blog formats.  So, hope you enjoy!  Feedback is welcome too!

Hmm, making it simpler is a great idea! It will make your art works stand out more and therefore, give your viewers and visitors time to be fascinated on your works and not on the site. Simplicity is beauty, they say. I think your artworks already became the highlight of your web design! Great job! How did your old web design look like, btw? I didn’t get the chance to see it.

Thanks, Sage! I'm glad you like the new design. My old site had a dark green background with a decorative menu bar, a lot more pages to click around and more text that required scrolling down the page to see it all. I think it was more visually rich, but this new design is definitely easier to get around, and like you said, hopefully will showcase my work better.

Your new website design is simple yet so detailed. The landing page is very compact and functional. Plus, I find it quite easy to navigate because I don’t have to scroll up and down just to see the whole page. Great job!

It’s a good thing that you made your site look simpler. Sometimes, we get conscious with the look that we almost forget to consider the content. It’s okay to not be too vain with the appearance. Rather, always remember that it’s the content that’s what makes your viewer appreciate your works.
