  2. Joshua Cavin says

    This is very helpful for layout. I recommend for users to go with an unboxed layout. Makes the website look more modern and for bigger screensizes, creates a much more fluid look. Great tutorial

  18. Green TwoStay says

    Thanks for the info,I find modern symmetrical websites very disconnecting and unfriendly,sort of like a shop that doesn’t allow browsing or children entering ,I guess my “Eco’ themes on my websites desire a more informal experience,hence my reluctance to adopt them?’

    1. Shawn Barry, Creative says

      This is the challenge of all designers… break down the common place and find an alternative. Sounds like a good problem to solve.
