Visible & invisible site updates

Over the holidays, I had the pleasure(?) of attending a LAN party where 1) I was the only girl and 2) I was the only macbook. Since they never got around to playing the Steam games that I own, I ended up working until 6am, re-writing the markup and css of my site. Version 1.0 dates back to June 2009, and, though it was pixel-perfect true to the design, and worked pretty ok, it was a little messy under the hood – something I could easily see after working more intimately with css over the last 1.5 years. Let me know what you think of the improvements:

  • tidier markup and managed to edit the css from 700(?!) lines to 350 lines (site looks exactly the same, and functions better)
  • stopped absolutely positioning things since I’ve figured out floats in the last year o_O
  • replaced the highslide js popups with jquery sliding carousels
  • added some recent projects to all sections
  • replaced some of the text to be less lolcat, more professional
  • added an Illustration section with vector drawings and icon sets from recent projects

Anything on your mind?
