Welcome the New Grand Effect Site

Grand Effect New Design

Grand Effect has a new design! There are still many features that need to be rolled out, and content pages definitely need some more tweaking both in the CSS site, and just in imagery and whatnot, but the main skeleton of the site is ready, as well as the features that were prevalent on the original site.

I have also added a combined RSS feed to allow people to subscribe to all of the Grand Effect blogs with one Master RSS subscription link. This is really handy for us as we will be adding a few more members soon. If you want to subscribe to each blog individually, we have also made that easy to do.

I hope you enjoy some of the small details I put into the site. Content related concerns will get tightened up over the coming weeks. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to one programmer, Andrew McCloud, that I will definitely be highlighting in more detail shortly, as he really saved me by converting it from an image into a full xhtml/css template that I was then able to change into a WordPress theme rather easily.

Please feel free to let me know what you think. I know I am no designer, but I really think that it is my best work yet.

    Not bad, but there are a few things I’d change. Like for instance the navigation menu is far too dark. Maybe on Wednesday I can go over then with you at the meetup. You still comming?

    I wanted to let you know that the navigation link colors, when they are not highlighted, they are too dark and pretty hard to read. I would make them 2 to 3 shades lighter. Other than that, I think everything else looks pretty good.

    John and Jeff – I will work on fixing the nav. It looks great on my MacBook Pro, guess it’s not as strong of a difference on other monitors.

    John – I am still planning on coming, for sure!
