Dan Cederholm’s work has been an inspiration of mine for many years. I stumbled upon his website, Simplebits, back in 2005 and it has been bookmarked ever since. His use of web standards along with crafty CSS implementations, has kept me constantly trying to look over his shoulder to see what kinds of new things he has been creating.
The new blog design is nothing to shout about, but it has a nice classy undertone with subtle effects, media-queries and you guessed it, simplicity. I am sure that when I find the time, I will throughly examine the inner workings of the site, hoping to discover a new way to polish my own development process.
His book release is another in the series by A Book Apart centered around the theme of creating “Brief books for people who make websites”. I read the first in the series by Jeremy Keith regarding HTML5, and I am highly anticipating this new book on CSS3 to arrive.
