Dave's new visual design has good points, but it also has bad points too. There are a lot of interesting things going on, but there is a sense of clutter about it all. The text is easier to read, but it's semi-fluid design seems to leave orphaned spaces that I don't like. The redesigned logo is nice, but it is lost in the odd banner.
And...well...it isn't really blue anymore, is it?
How Mezzoblue looks isn't all that important. What matters is the great stuff that Dave Shea writes. There is no question about his talent, and I respect everything he says. I just think that with the new visual design of his site, he has gone just a wee bit radical for my taste.
Perhaps I'll get used to it.
