Hi, I’m Jeff Sarmiento, a web designer from
Toronto, Canada and I enjoy making smokin’ websites.

meshU Gets a Redesign

16 Comments

Last month I gave the meshU website a much needed redesign. The old meshU design I made was ok. Very very simple, super clean. The website was straight forward, information was very accessible and the content was easy to read. But when you look at the old design, it is not clear that meshU is related to the mesh Conference (for those that don’t know, meshU is a sister-event of the mesh Conference). Visually the old meshU design gives no sense of connection to the mesh event (well accept from the mesh logo in the sidebar). The new design however gives the meshU brand a fresh splatter of creative flair which I think captures the essence of the event. At the same time it creates a connection to mesh which I think was absent before.

And for all of you reading, mesh and meshU are just around the corner. Both take place every spring right here in Toronto and both have some great speakers lined up. To find out who’s speaking visit the meshU speakers page or the mesh homepage. Both events always sell out so I recommend you get your tickets as soon as you can.

haha why didn’t he just take a screenshot and upload lol that is such a copy you should email him about it or sumting, neway its not even as good as the orginal poor guy lol… hey jeff thought i’d ask a guestion i always wanted to get into web design but i’v never really thought i was up to level with other designs thought i’d take it seriously after my studies but im starting to have a change of heart anyway what i wanted to ask is more to do with cms, got to keep the comment short, i’v been intrested by the drupal cms but the start with a template thing is putting me off u seem to know about them n wordpress which i havnt try’d out yet, include joomla in this which one do u think is best for starters

Hey suede and Lewis, I’ve seen his site and he actually contacted me before he posted it live, asking for my opinion. I thought he added his own design elements and changed it up enough.

Lewis, I haven’t tried Joomla or Drupal before so I can’t give my opinion on those. I found Wordpress was very easy to install and set up. And the system itself is very easy to use. There is also a massive online community around Wordpress so if you ever need help, plugins, themes etc. it’s all pretty easy to find. But I’m sure Joomla and Drupal have the same.
