Imperomedia.com has a new look. Over the past two weeks or so, we have taken the design of our website and repackaged it to better optimize our message and our overall look. Perhpas most significantly as web designers, the new look was created entirely with the Thesis theme. While there is certainly a learning curve with Thesis, this is now the second site I have built with it and it is feeling more and more like it will be my default theme of choice for future sites and clients with no other requests.
I am certainly happy with how the site looks, but it is and will continue to be a work in progress. I will try to post more articles on using Thesis and what I have learned along the way. I was able to discuss some of my issues via Twitter with Chris Pearson, the creator of Thesis as I built my first site with Thesis and found ways to make the difficult things easier. Essentially, the site is built with boxes upon boxes inside of boxes, each styled uniquely and holding different functional powers. We are running a lot of widgets and also a lot of custom functions, but in the end, I feel the site has a cleaner look and vastly improved functionality. I like clean and I like easy. This site is now both of those things to me.
I’m excited to present this new look and I am equally excited to see where it evolves to next.
