Right, so, wow, ten days since I last posted! Eek, bad form. Let me get straight to the point. I’ve been working on the site but very slowly. It’s very likely I won’t get to finish by the end of January, but that’s ok, it’s not a race.

In the last video, I talked about a testing site, and I’m gonna let you guys in on it so you can see the site evolve live. Check out stolendatatapes.com to see the new site in progress.

I spent most of my efforts thus far decomposing the theme and figuring out how to adjust it. That in itself is quite an effort, but now that I’ve got the workflow sorted I should be able to make some good sweeping adjustments in short order (after all, I’ve done this before.)

The site layout is pretty much sorted. The header and footers are mostly the way I want ’em, but the main content is very much in progress. And of course the typography will change a great deal. Having the entire thing in Helvetica makes it look tragically like a template.

What do you think? Colours, layout, use of whitespace? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
