    It looks awesome! Did you program it, Natalie?

  2. Natalie Zee Drieu on said:

    Thanks Heather! I didn’t do the programming – our webmaster, Tatia did a great job doing so!

    Do you mind if I ask what CMS? Just curious!

  4. Natalie Zee Drieu on said:

    We have our own one that was built within O’Reilly.

    This might be a silly question, but if I’m already subscribed to the newsletter, does that count as an entry for the Yudu?
    The new site looks great!

    I’ll be the dissenter – I think the new design is way too cluttered. The various colors are great for the header, but the right side menu, when on a page with a busy image, is just too much. Thank goodness for RSS….

  7. I’m using Firefox 3.5.5 on a MacBookPro and the new site is pretty majorly broken in it. Looks like maybe some floats are wonking the whole thing out. I’m happy to send along screen shots if it would help.

  8. It looks good, guys, thanks for all your work!!

    honestly, your blog before was well organized and good looking. now it is like a mess. hard to see everything in a first glance. before this was possible. you still have your colours and signdesign. but the layout is now impossible. sry to say so. i´m a designer too and i´m disappointed. i will still read it.

    I’m curious how you would improve the site, claudi! Maybe you’re just reacting to the change? A new navigation from what you’re used to can be confusing at first, but it doesn’t make it bad. Give it a few weeks! =]

  11. Becky Stern on said:

    And we use Moveable Type for the blog, which dovetails with our custom site CMS. And yeah, Tatia did a wonderful job!

  12. Becky Stern on said:

    Yep, you’re already entered if you’re already subscribed! =]

    i love the new design – it’s so much more organized! now I’m aware of other parts of the side aside from the blog as well :) Having followed craftzine for the last 4 years, this facelift is much appreciated.

    Refresh, is it ok now?

    And it is much faster
