I am the face behind Circle Orange, a new web studio focusing on comprehensive web solutions medium- to large-sized businesses and organizations. This site features my blog about various topics that interest me, including the web work that I do.
On a more personal note, I'm also a Linux enthusiast and crazy runner/cyclist. I like finding the biggest hill I can, and riding my bike up.
As you may have noticed, I've released some incremental upgrades to the design of my site.
Overall, the look is basically the same. However, I've simplified several design elements somewhat and hopefully, text on the site is more readable. As of this writing, this design works best in Chrome and current Webkit-based browsers.
Several elements of my website are using the new(ish) CSS Flexbox spec, which is not fully supported in some browsers. So you may see the site as "broken" to various degrees. Here's my reasoning:
- I wanted to use Flexbox,
- If you're using an out-of-date browser, I think you should upgrade, and
- If you are using a current browser, but Flexbox still isn't completely supported in that browser, the browser vendors should fix that and implement the latest standards fully.
For example, Firefox (which I really like) doesn't support a property called
flex-wrap. So if you
visit the homepage of my site, you'll see the blog articles all squished together. Ultimately, at this
point, I'd rather code to the spec than the browser for my own website.
Regardless, I hope you enjoy the design. There are a couple more things to roll out (code syntax highlighting is among them) but most of it is in better shape than the previous version.
