    This is the final teaser from the forthcoming redesign. More than I want to reveal. This is part of the main nav. Everything still set in Times New Roman, but some type and colours will change.

    Looks very... different.

    Looking forward to seeing this live.

    This is the main navigation? I'm really curious about the whole thing.

    Is that a css transformation? :)

    If it is and if you'll use the -moz-transformation for rotating the box, then you should know that the text will probably look a bit... off. Try it. It's still a bit buggish, the ff implementation.

    Thanks André. It is indeed a CSS rotation, with shadow and background transition. I am aware of the limitations. I'm still experimenting with this one.

    makes me feel a little better about degrading to times now ... can't wait for this to hit my eyes full size.

    Jase: I don't see it as "degrading to Times". Me and Mr. Wood agree that used carefully, Times New Roman looks bloody ace. We all got bored of it ages ago, yet it's still handy.

    I think the mass usage of Times taints peoples' views sometimes. When used well (like here) is looks great!

    Colly: I think that came out wrong .. I was referring to it being my font of choice if typekit fails on my site. But that said, I've not given it the love that it could have, and therefore I was a bit reserved.

    I quite like Times, I just know it sometimes gets nose-turned .. anyway, my original sentiment retained I'm looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.

    @Jason and Colly: I think it gets nose-turned because of its exposure as being the default in Office for a long time. Not saying that I "love" it, I don't like to use it on the web because I think it doesn't work great on the web, but I like to use it in italics, it works great for headlines, specially in full caps. And let's not forget that the beautiful Seed Conference website is all set with it.

    @Paulo Zoom: You're not saying that you "love" it? I'll say it then, I love it, damn it!
