New theme/design has gone live

I came up with the new design several months ago and developed about 80% of it – in fact before OpenAustralia was even launched. However getting the last 20% done took a little while, back and forth, implementing some of the trickier stuff which required getting into the code … and when I looked at setting up my own development instance of OpenAustralia it all came to a standstill.

However last weekend after the Web Directions South 2008 conference I dropped in at Matthew and Kat’s place for about 4 hours and we just ripped through the last few little styling issues and CSS bugs and now a week later the new theme has gone live!

As charming as the TWFY green & red design was, we decided we wanted to stand apart with our own unique look – something a bit more representative of Australia (no we didn’t go green & gold). It’s a rather dry theme, beiges, browns, greys and oranges.

Hope you like it!
