Grasslands: Textplates 2007 Dreamed 4375 days ago | | 196 words

Textplates '07'

I’m a huge Textpattern enthusiast. I use it for all my sites and it’s a platform I really like working with. It’s great for a designer-turned-coder like me since it uses xhtml and css instead of php to get most of its heavy lifting done.

Last year when the Textplates contest happened I was still too green to properly put anything together. This year I intended to change that.

For the past few months I’ve been working on a redesign of my personal site and upcoming portfolio. When that launches it will mark the first time I’ve really put together a full site in Textpattern.

However, for the contest I chose to go a simpler route. Take my current design which I have grown very fond us and use that as a base.

The template I have submitted, which I have dubbed Grasslands is my first venture into submitting a design for other people to use. It is my first time entering a contest, design or otherwise.

Now that you have a little background, here is Grasslands.

Addendum: Grasslands is now on the contest site.
