It feels like I’m always redesigning this site. Mostly, it’s because I am, and I think that anyone who has gone to the trouble of designing and coding up their own website will inevitably find themselves in the design/implement/redesign cycle.
Normally, the style of my site is based around what I can do, rather than what I have in mind. This normally happens because I work in HTML and CSS, rather than prototyping in something like Photoshop. This time around I decided to come up with a solid prototype before messing around with code, so did some googling to see what I could find. I came across a great post on 24 ways – Make Your Mockup in Markup – which presents a great series of steps for developing your design without resorting to an image editor.
