As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, Pattern Pulp got a nip, tuck and refresh yesterday! What was initially meant to be a little spring cleaning turned into a full-blown makeover, one that’s been a long time coming from a branding, UI, UX perspective.
Pattern Pulp’s content and community has evolved over the past three years and while the blog format’s been a fun stream of consciousness, it hasn’t been as efficient as we’d like in pointed search.
I’ve even found myself scratching my head while searching for examples buried within the database. Therefore, I had a problem that needed solving- and my hope is that as you refer to the site both for research and inspiration and that you’re able to get the most out of our robust archive moving forward.
Handing over version #8 of an ever-growing photoshop file to Dan my patient and rather speedy developer, he brought this first phase to life in under two weeks (unbelievable, considering it took months to commit to a design). And while this week is just the beginning of what’s to come, I’d love to hear your feedback as Emily, Dan and I continue implementing new elements over the coming weeks.
In the meantime, enjoy, submit and stay inspired!
