The CSS Reboot 2005 launched yesterday and I must say that I am highlly impressed by the number of entries and some of the beautiful redesigns shown. As a trend I noticed that designers are taking the blog format and truly stretching the limits of information design with them.
This can be both good and bad. Good because the organization of the information is structured and well laid out, but at the same time too much information on a page starts to confuse the reader. No longer are personal blogs just that, they have definitely become full-blown personal portals.
For example, Benjamin Adam has a redesign that uses the Transparent Liquid design discussed by Jeremy Keith (wonder if he was drunk arguing with his friends at 5am when this idea came up). His site contains a lot of information, but all of it is well presented as to not confuse the reader and make the site experience any less enjoyable. Good stuff.
If you haven’t already I suggest you have a look at the entries for the CSS Reboot to look at some great designs and maybe find some new and interesting sites to read. Also, don’t forget to vote and let me know about your favorite design.
