4 Pixels or Less

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Having too much choice is one of the main obstacles for 21st century designers. With virtually unlimited tools and possibilities at our fingertips in the digital age, our creativity can become clouded very easily. Being inundated with thousands of photoshop brushes or fonts can push the very concept of a design from the forefront of your mind.

She’s renowned the world over for being a miracle worker. Now imagine she achieved this notable status while constantly making obvious mistakes with the scalpel.

Would that happen?

The new blogazine

Taking inspiration from the likes of Dustin Curtis, Jason Santa Maria and Gregory Wood, I am in the process of creating my own ‘blogazine‘.  Each post on it will have it’s own custom design, based upon the content.

Here’s a sneak preview of the design so far:

Without much fanfare, a sneaky little redesign appeared at I Am Paddy in the dead of night. In my Live creation process blog posts: Inspiration and Sketching, something quite different was forming, but the blog your looking at now is becoming a thing of the past. I’ve got something far more interesting than a regular blog in the works, but I needed to replace this blog with a simpler design.

Quick and Simple

I did a lot of quick slashing of the content, links and widgets from the old site, which were dragging the site down and making it look so so messy.  Simplicity is key for this site and I wanted to keep it at the bare minimum.  There’s still a few bugs here and there as I haven’t been over all my old blog posts to see how they’re holding up, but that should be fixed soon.
