The Dirty Robber Blog

Soft Launch

Posted in Uncategorized by dirtyrobberblog on January 9, 2010

The redesign of is almost complete.

Over the next week we’ll ask our friends and colleges to give us feedback on the redesign so we can make it as sharp as possible.

There were several reasons for needing a new site. Among them were the drawbacks of a flash-based template site. Our current/old site is hosted on, which is great for many purposes, such as photographer’s resumes and artist’s portfolios. However we needed something different. Aside from better SEO (search engine optimization), an HTML site gives us better control over the small details of the layout, such as placement and order of things. Also, the new site will be hosted by Dirty Robber rather than a third party, which cuts down on unexpected things like the site going down without us knowing.

So let us know what you think. Be sure to point out any broken links, spelling errors, or glitches. The new site is designed to automatically re-size according to your own browser window, but there is still testing to be done on smaller monitors, and older versions of Internet Explorer.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
