Almost a full year after the release of version 7, here is now the definite upgrade to enhance my initial vision.
I told myself last year that this really was the definite version and i was looking forward to devote more time to other creative aspects than solely webdesign. I still hold true to that and i can’t wait to get back to painting and taking photos. This upgrade though was much needed and i feel now that it was the correct way to go.
Since i was really pleased with the initial version 7, creating a total re-design to version 8 just didn’t feel right. Instead i would hold on to everything that made it great and push the parts that needed more work. I give you, version 7.1.
My main reasons for this was to try and speed things up and also unleash the full potential to the individual sites. The initial setup used WordPress to conform all sites under one. It felt like the best thing to do at the time but i quickly realized this would eventually bring me severe problems and limit what i could achieve. In this new setup, i am more or less free to do what ever the individual sites require.
At the same time re-building all of this i got the chance to update templates and basic setups to html 5, that feels really nice. And i finally got to use those flickr and youtube scripts i have been working on for quite some time, you can see them in action on the various sites.
Also, the initial entry of www.gurkoz.com got a re-design now using plain html to speed things up. This will in the future be used as a first stop and a road map for the rest of the sites. www.gurkozproductions.com is the center of all information and posts like this one.
As always, there are still a few quirks and things to work out. But i have now reached a point where i feel comfortable with releasing it into the wild. I still have quite a few ideas left untouched, but for the sake of my own sanity, i leave that for later.
The sites now currently available are the following.
A comic project i am planning to devote more time to in the future.
