CF 8.0

 

 

CF 8.0 was the design of this site from 2007 or 2008 until it was retired in October 2012.  The design was very minimalist with a dark charcoal grey background and deep reds. The site logo and navigation floated on the left with a subtle shadow separating it from the content area. Some interesting code kept it in place during scrolling which I loved. Unfortunately this was problematic to implement on mobile devices. It also had a JavaScript based reflection algorithm which made a cool reflection effect on all my photos. This also ended up being problematic on mobile devices and was awesomely broken on the new Xbox 360 version of Internet Explorer. I was very fond of it but with mobile use on the rise I had to let it go to be more mobile friendly.
