I am a developer, not a designer/developer which to me is a fallacy. There is no such thing as a designer and developer, you’re using two different parts of your brain for both tasks. You’re either a design or you’re a developer. Anyway, that discussion is for another time.
Having said that, recently a music blog I operate needed a redesign and because I am cheap and like making things hard on myself, I decided to re-design the entire site myself. You all know my stance on web design, so naturally I used Adobe Fireworks and not Photoshop to design the site.
I think the end result didn’t turn out that bad, it might be a bit too orange but the older design was way worse which was a hacked paid theme I got off Themeforest. I’m obviously a developer because my use of spot colour was ridiculous.
