Tokyo Art Beat redesigns

TABlog screenshot Last week, our latest Tokyo Art Beat makeover was released in the wild.

Besides a wider, 948px layout with an second sidebar, the TAB shop got a serious usability treatment. Chris has the nitty-gritty on the thinking process behind the shop UI and the "pixel-idealized conveyor belt" on his blog. Also be sure to check out those new T-shirt designs, and if you like them, purchase one! Or two!

I was mainly involved with the setup, templating and css coding of the new TABlog, which we turned into a fine e-mag with featured content instead of the previous blog-like roll of posts. For those interested, that's WordPress under the hood, with a heap of get_posts() instances on the frontpage.
