How The Web Moves On, And Doesn't

11 September 2019

Today we are over­joyed to launch a new major redesign. Huge thanks to Seamus Hol­man, Sarah War­ing and Jana Grabn­er for help­ing to make this a reality!!

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.
