Today’s highlighted design is….North X East. The owner of NxE, Collis Ta’eed, is obviously a designer. Take a look at the current design (as of July 6, 2007….who knows? It could change again. ). It’s not your ordinary blog design. It’s pretty unique. Then there was the old, design (which was really cool as well). Collis has even said “I admit I do tend to dislike my own old designs Actually you’ll laugh to hear that I’ve already started to dislike this one, but this time I’m going to ignore myself!”. That’s how I feel about my designs as well. I sort of….get bored with them after awhile. When you know how to design, you tend to want to design more often than you get a chance to, and you get tired of your blog’s same old design.
Back to the current North X East layout, look at it thoroughly. The first thing you notice is the thin header along the top, complete with a cool logo.
Moving down the design, you’ll notice that the most recent post is highlighted at the top, with less-recent posts’ titles below it. This is different from the traditional blog, as Collis has pointed out.
Well, take a look at the site, including the post pages. You won’t be disappointed.
