Ralph Art Website relaunched

Woo hoo! The new Ralph Art website is now officially live!  I cut over the DNS for http://www.ralphart.com a little while ago, so now the redesigned site is the one you'll see when you go there.

If you are curious or bored, the old site, with all its warts and poor display on mobile devices, is still visible at http://old.ralphart.com. The last redesign (mostly just a reskinning) took place about 3 years ago (give or take). I'll probably leave it there for a while, for curiosity sake.

The new site has (in my opinion) a much improved organization, with lots of large images of art. For once I did not do the complete redesign myself, instead I started with a template and heavily customized it. This let me create a responsive, mobile device friendly site with a minimum of effort on my part. Yes, I have been known to be lazy.

Leave comments below if you feel so inclined or find a glaring mistake somewhere.

New Website!

Doing a soft launch of the new Ron Crouch /  Ralph Art website. For now the URL is http://new.ralphart.org. After I've made sure I've gotten all the rough edges sanded away I'll be changing that to http://www.ralphart.org. The old site is still at http://www.ralphart.com -- haven't quite decided what to do with that. I may eventually point that at the new site.

If you see a problem, email me or direct message my Twitter account @RalphArt.

I'm using responsive design (should look good on desktop/mobile/tablet) and hosting it on Openshift.com.
