ヴァイオリニスト・西谷国登氏のウェブサイトリニューアル

ヴァイオリニスト・西谷国登氏のウェブサイトリニューアル いつもお世話になっているヴァイオリニスト&指揮者、西谷国登先生のウェブサイトのリニューアルのお手伝いをさせていただきました! http://nkunito.com 2年ぶりの大幅刷新です。昨年末にリデザインさせていただいた、新しいロゴデザインも早速使用しています。 今回は以下のポイントにおいてのリニューアルでした: ・レンタルサーバー/ドメイン管理をGodaddyから日本のサービスに移行 (理由:重かったり遅かったり、いろいろ) ・更新者(西谷先生)がスマホから「かんたんに(一番重要)」ブログなどの記事をアップ できるように変更 ・↑のために、以前まで使っていたWordpressをやめ、tumblrに乗り換え 実際tumblrはブログとtwitterの中間地点的な立ち位置で、アプリのUIUXも充実しており、 更新が容易だろうと推測。先生ご自身にもテストしてもらい、tumblrに移行決定。 tumblrもすっかり使いこなせていただいているようでなにより!今までWordpressを使って更新していただいていた記事はエクスポートし、無料のwordpress.comにインポートして格納。 先生の記事の更新頻度や内容とクオリティを考え、tumblrにしたのは正解だったと思います。使用しているテーマがカード式に並ぶのですが、写真もうまく撮影していただいているおかげで見栄えしています。 今後も楽しいブログを楽しみにしています!

Apple Watch is great for Runners who are also Pokemon Go Players

Apple Watch is great for Runners who are also Pokemon Go Players I bought my Apple Watch 2nd generation in November, 2016. I actually had the 1st generation (release in 2014-ish? I think), but quickly resold it, as it did not have GPS in it – I still had to carry an iPhone with me on runs, even with the […]

Amazon Appstore Banner Redesigned

Amazon Appstore Banner Redesigned I was looking inside the Amazon Appstore the other day and noticed that one of the banners sucked. At least to me anyways. It really stood out – not because the banner was good, but because it was bad, and it looked so out of place. The “Editor’s Pick” banner here: The design is very “surface-y” […]

The World Book Design Exhibition itself is free to enter. Exquisite books from all over […]
