8 years ago today we revealed our first major redesign to the PutYourLightsOn brand. To my surprise, while taking a trip down memory lane, I realised that even though the web has really moved on since then, design really hasn’t that much.
Original Design (2007) #
The original design used a dark background with some bold neon colours to add playful contrast.
2011 Redesign #
The 2011 redesign moved to a dark on light colour scheme for better readability. In addition to a new design, the plugin docs were completely rewritten, making this a mega site relaunch.
2018 Redesign #
In 2018 we introduced a responsive design which was much overdue. This was done rather quickly, knowing that a major redesign was in the pipeline.
2019 Redesign #
We really took our time on getting this redesign just the way we wanted it. All in all it took 6 months of planning, illustrating, designing and content creation. We are delighted with the result and feel that it encapsulates our philosophy better than any of our previous designs.
