The new & improved EricPratum.com

open Some time ago, I was doing a conversion of a client’s website from a flash-based site to a WordPress-based site.  I was showing her different examples for functionality and whatnot on this site when she mentioned that she thought it was too busy.

I agreed and filed in the back of my mind that I needed to update to make the site simpler and more visually appealing.

After a little over a week of work in my free time, the site has finally arrived. There are still a few bugs to work out, like why it is that I can’t seem to put spacing between paragraphs without using using a bullet point. <br> and <p> don’t seem to work.

As well, I still need to update a bit of the content, but I am very happy that I feel this design better highlights the consulting work I’ve been doing.

If you have suggestions for the site, I’d be more than happy to hear them.

As well, if you’d like to be on the Who Rocks page, . I’ll check out your site and then get you set up.

Or, if you know how to fix this little issue about paragraph spacing, I’d also love some help with that. ;-)

    Looking good, I didn’t see the previous design but came to check this new one after you mentioned it on Twitter. The footer is particularly nice.

    I’m in the middle of building a new design for my own site, and completely agree with your idea of de-cluttering. I spent some time looking at my site analytics and identified the things that people actually used/clicked on the site and then started stripping out or de-prioritising everything else. Some of the changes I’ve made are similar to what you’ve done here.

    Thanks for checking this out and giving me your opinion.

    I like your current design, but am curious to see what you’ll have next. :-)
