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

Click on the pic­ture to view its orig­i­nal size (Warn­ing: 1600 x 1600 px).

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?

:P
