Day 25: Crafty Goat, continued

Saturday, March 22, 2003

Just a couple of minor updates on Crafty Goat — one visible, one not.

I removed the drop shadow and added a bevel to the logo. Better, but I’m still not happy with the jaggedness of it. I’ve tried the various anti-aliasing options in Photoshop, but so far I have not seen a significant difference between them. I’ll work on that some more.

Behind the scenes, I created my own Perl module to hold the functions that will be used throughout the site. That’s something I’ve never done in Perl before. I basically followed this tutorial, and everything worked.

I’m a little stuck on the design. Primarily, I’m having trouble deciding where to put the navigation. We don’t want to cover up the background anymore than necessary, but that limits my options. I just need to get something on the page, I guess, and see how it looks. But, that’s for tomorrow — it’s late, and I’m tired.

Perhaps the hardest lesson to learn when one is starting a business is when to go to bed.
