Blog Skin & Blog Template Design

b2evolution blog skin design: Smoothe Series

Date: 2007-2008

Distribution: Electronic Media / b2evolution blog platform

Project Description: Each of these b2evolution skins is fully compliant with the XHTML Transitional specification, as well as with the CSS 2.0 specification. Each of these templates is designed on, and for, b2evolution 1.10.2. The ‘Smoothe’ skin series departs from the standard b2evolution skins being designed in that it's targeted at 1024x768 resolutions and higher. I was getting frustrated with, and feeling cramped by, the standard static designs being released for 800x600 resolutions.

b2evolution blog skin design: Hirideyo Series

Date: July 2007

Distribution: Electronic Media / b2evolution blog platform

Project Description: The Hirideyo series of b2evolution blog skins was designed for a friend's blog site, and was originally developed alongside the ‘Smoothe’ series of blog templates which I designed for b2evolution 1.10.2.

The Hirideyo series of templates reflects an Eastern motif, using such elements as rice-paper fans, cherry blossom branches, and stylized flower patterns. Since Iris is running her site as a single-blog system, these blog skins were designed for single-blog use, but can be altered for multi-blog use quite easily by adjusting only two lines of code in the CSS Stylesheet.
