Itchy feet

No not in the sense you are thinking. I mean in the design sense, not the sense that I have physically got itchy feet! Ha! Yeah alright, I can hear you, my site has only just been redesigned. But I have itchy feet again! I don’t know why it is, I guess that it just doesn’t feel like me.

For those of you who have been here for a while it has always been a bit of an issue as to what my blog/website actually looks like. I have always wanted it to represent me, which continually presents a difficult task. I have to be happy with it. Now being me and being a designer presents 2 issues here. I am a perfectionist. Therefore, whenever I am designing for myself I am never satisfied, I can never settle on one particular design for long enough. As a result, I’m starting to get itchy feet already with how this blog looks. It doesn’t mean I won’t be using this design, no doubt it will be up for a while but I’m starting to want to change it again, it just doesn’t seem to be stylish enough for my liking.

Now, there is ussually a reason for my sudden desire to redesign the appearance of my blog. This time it happens to be the release of K2 0.9 and the superb job that Michael Heileman has done in creating Binary Bonsai on the K2 base. It just demonstrates what a superb base K2 is and the flexibility it has to create something unique and beautiful. Basically it is making me want to create something of my own. This means one thing. The next theme for my blog, which no doubt I will start designing soon, will be one that I code myself. Then I can say its all my work. So with that I’m going to start learning PHP and CSS, but specifically CSS. While I am setting myself this little task, it will no doubt take me a while to do, which means you get to enjoy the wonders of the current theme.

UPDATE: Who am I kidding, I do like this design, I just need to complete it all. Like making the portfolio link real and so forth!! The blog stays, amazing what a difference a day can make!
