I am not a designer. I can just about lay a comprehensible web page out. But It’s getting round to time for Black Ink’s yearly overhaul, and I can’t seem to come up with anything. Of course, some might say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but I have no interest in hearing that. I’ve had an off-the-shelf design for a year now, and I know CSS a bit better by this point, having rebuilt Ninth Art into a table-less layout. But try as I might, I can’t come up with a layout that interests me.
In desperation, I’ve tried just playing with the colours of my current one, and I can’t make that work, either. Anyone know anywhere I can look for inspiration?
One thought on “Making Pretty”
I’ve had no end of inspiration from the variations-on-a-page at CSS Zen Garden and Zen Garden design page. But aren’t you supposed to be writing anyway?
