After 3.5+ years, I finally gave Web Designer Wall a new look. The new design is not just visually appealing, but well coded in technical point of view. I incorporated a lot of new web standard techniques such as HTML5, CSS3, and media queries. The new design works on all devices and resolutions. The design automatically flows base on user’s browser viewpoint. It flows from 3-column layout to 2-column, 1-column, and a narrow single column layout for mobile devices. This means my site design never break regardless of the user’s display resolution. To see this in action, visit Web Designer Wall and resize your browser window. I even spent the extra time to create a print stylesheet to make sure the content are printed out nicely. For more details on the redesign, read this blog post.
