Under The Microscope

The New RogueAmoeba.com

Today, we’ve unveiled a major overhaul to our website. If you’re reading this in your RSS reader, pop over to https://rogueamoeba.com and check it out. If you’re on our site, then you’re seeing it right now – hooray!

This is approximately the fourth iteration of the Rogue Amoeba web site, from our opening day site back in 2002, to our first multiple-products design, to the site we’ve had for several years now. That design was functional, but we really wanted to give it a visual overhaul, and fix some smaller design aspects of it as well.

To that end, we worked with Dan Cederholm of SimpleBits. He and I chatted multiple times about what functionality was most important to us, namely providing useful information on our products, and then getting you to our downloads and our store as easily as possible. We also discussed where we wanted to have major improvements and where we needed new ideas. Dan took all that, digested it, and came back to us with something great. After that, he worked with us to refine it as we put it together, and fill in missing pieces with needed additional work.

Dan’s done great work, and we couldn’t be more pleased. He was quick and responsive, and he produced what we needed, never backing off from a challenge. If you need top-quality web design work, check out SimpleBits.

We hope you like the new site. There are bound to be some issues with this update, such as bad links or missing images, so if you spot something, please let us know with a comment on this post!
