Time for my yearly appearance, and of course a new design - V4 -or what ever. With last years ultra failure of a launch, i hope this new one will please the crowds.
Here are the templates (not all work yet):
Who can guess who's blog i copied for filler text?
Lets follow in the footsteps of our masters...
New V3 Mocks
Posted on January 05, 2011 at 22:40
Okay, so here's what I've got so far. I've looked at all the blog posts about V3's design and considered all the mock ups made by Misconstruct, Moikle and Mordi (and anyone else who's contributed), and I've decided to revamp the design almost completely. I'll be doing my best to make the css more 'standardized' thanks to everyone who hates the way I do it, and perhaps work towards making the site completely skianable.
This will take time though, so don't hold me to it. I work full time+, so what I do on this site is the result of the following equation:
((work + girlfriend + friends + free time) - total time) * motivation = 64D.V3
As you can see, the major variable is motivation, and I mainly get that from reading everyone's comments and seeing that my work will mean something to someone...
They are all pretty much the same except for the background colour of the sidebar to show you what it would look like with different colours. Oh, and the last screen shot has a different searchbar image.
Oh, and for those who don't like the new 'sixty four digits' font, screw you. I bought it just for 64D, so unless you want to suggest a new font from http://www.myfonts.com
and buy it for
the community, it's staying.
V3 Nav (2)

I've decided to keep the dark grey, because i think it adds some much needed contrast to the site. Plus, it will mesh well with miscontruct's (http://64digits.com/users/Misconstruct/user_sidebar.png) mock up of the "badge."
Here is the new menu mockup:
I just did a 10hr day at work today and I've gotta get up at 6am tomorrow, so I'll be coding it later (if anyone really opposes the new 'condensed' version, shout at me through PM's).
Current TO DO:
- Refine top menu (with condensed menu and drop downs)
- Redesign left '64d Badge' using misconstruct's mock
- Refine css
- Sleep more

I've been reading a lot of the new comments about V3 and they're mostly good, which motivates me to continue improving the site. First thing first, the menu. It seems like a lot of you don't like how huge it is, so here is what it would look like on a diet. I've also made a mashup of the github menu into our template to see what it would look like with it a lighter grey.
Next up: the latest new. We can't have it looking like google ads, now can we?
(god my font is horrible. We gotta get the preferences working so i can change this eyesore)
