I'm rebuilding this site right now. So a lot of things may look broken. But what better motivation for me to finish it?

This is a test.

I’ve had this test site¬†[now a dead link] up for a couple months, basically to test out themes and mess with ideas for this site. I’m working on a redesign right now. I like the clean look, but I think it’s getting a bit tired. I also want to get my portfolio incorporated into the same site. One of the sites that has really been inspiring in me trying to redesign this site is urbanears. I think I want to pattern my portfolio after this style and incorporate this type of slider presentation into the blog.

Right now, I’m using a super stripped down customized theme, but on the test site, I’ve been using iThemes Builder theme. It’s ultra-customizable and a really interesting way to build complete web sites with great features and ability for customization. When I got the theme, it was all text and blanks. I’ve done a lot of tweaking and Photoshopping. It’s definitely a work in progress for now, but sometime soon, expect an AdBrad redesign.

So if you have any feedback or something you think would look awesome, let me know. Check out the test site and let me know any ideas you might have. It’s a constant work in progress. As I change as a designer and as a person, my site should change with me.

    I love the new look that is coming! – Never thought I’d see the day you went serif..

    The featured post widget (or whatever it is you’re using there) is a great idea.

    Thanks man. I’m still debating on the serif part. It’s actually not a ready-made widget, just an embedded image in a text widget using HTML. Builder is freaking awesome.
