Happy birthday to denslee.com

My blog (denslee.com) has officially turned 1 year old yesterday.

I have officially published 67 posts and you are reading the 68th.

While reading the first post dated exactly 1 year ago titled The return of me had brought back a lot of memories. It’s been a long way.

My initial plan for commemorating this anniversary was to revamp the blog with my own new blog design. It’s a shame for a web designer to use other people’s design for one year.

So I bet with Kevin that he will see a new design on 13th of December 2008.

I had almost 1 month to do this but I never start until the last week. Hahaha… I guess I’ll never change. If you were to put me back to the past where I have enough time to redo my Final Year Project during my college time, I bet the result is going to be the same.

It took me 4 days to come up with this design.

Redesigned denslee.com

I worked for whole Friday night until 3 in the morning for that vector portrait of myself. It turned out to be less satisfied.

I kind of like the overall layout except the design of the header and the background.

With a less satisfied design and limited time to convert the design into WordPress theme, at the end I gave up designing and watch Sex and the City instead.

Yes Kevin, I will buy you Jogoya as promised.

But it doesn’t mean the end of the story. I will continue to work on this design and hopefully I can finish it before 2009.

The toughest client of all is no body else but myself. I want the blog to reflect who I am, what I do and what I like. But deisgning it is harder than I thought it would be.

So if you have any ideas, comments or critics, do let me know.

Very nice design. Why not put your own photo instead of using cartoon of you?

The problem is I don’t have any nice picture of myself 🙁
