New website generation, now supporting mobile!, Update by Doctacosa
After a few months of planning and work, I'm happy to release today a brand new website for the Creeper's Lab!
The previous design had been in use for over four years, and I thought it was time for a renewal, going through each page one at a time. At first glance, you might think that nothing's changed, but that's definitely not the case!
The behind-the-scenes structure of the website was overhauled to a new, more modern system. Various sections have been reorganized, images with a higher resolution are now in place, and various elements are now easier to read through. Even the website's logo was tuned with an updated font. The ultimate goal of all this?
Proper mobile support! If you tried to access the Creeper's Lab's website before on a smaller screen, you might have noticed that it wasn't very mobile-friendly. Font sizes were all over the place, many links were way too small, and you constantly had to pinch-and-zoom to read anything. The main navigation menu was almost impossible to use too. This has all been remedied and throughly tested on various screen sizes to ensure that the site will scale properly. I did all this without sacrificing anything from the desktop experience, as too many redesigns tend to do nowadays.
This is something that I had been meaning to do for a while, both for the convenience of all mobile users as well as a personal exercise on how to properly support all devices without using dumb shortcuts. I found it to be a valuable experience overall!
