It’s Alive! It’s Alive!

That’s right! I am back from my break and I am very excited to present the new Invading Holland redesign! It’s something I’ve been working on for quite a while and (although it took a lot longer than I expected) I am very pleased with the outcome.

The biggest part of the redesign is the webshop where you can now find all the Invading Holland T-Shirts (including a new one that will be available soon), badges and even the opportunity to get your very own Invading Holland style cartoon (something I’ve been doing behind the scenes for a little while now). The gallery has also been updated to show off more cartoons and the profile page has been rewritten.

Of course there is always the possibility that as you look around you might notice a few things not working as expected (I hope not but you never know) so if you spot any errors or have any other feedback I’d love to hear from you. There will be a few more minor updates coming later but all the big changes are done for now. I’m still looking for some more images to use in the webshop so if you have bought a t-shirt and would like to show off a bit just send me a photo of yourself wearing it. I’ll then include it in the next update.

Next week I will be returning to normal writing beginning with the story of my very Dutch summer holiday, a fight with a sun umbrella and how it led to my latest accident prone incident.

In the mean time; have a look around. I hope you like the new design.

    Looking good! Can’t wait for the new posts!

    I’d just like to point out that your shop’s navigation is a bit weird. The landing page shows you a few items to choose from, but upon choosing one you’re send to another page where you can once again choose from a few items. It might be better to just show every item on the shop page, or have distinct categories instead of three t-shirt items which all direct you to a page, where you can choose one of three t-shirts.

    Nice design. Looking forward to your new posts. But what’s with the black strip at the bottom of every page?

  4. I LOVE this design! So sleek and clean! (Well, the other design was clean as well, but the color scheme makes this one look better!)

    One thing, though: in the banner, the words “Accident-Prone” are stuck together. :P

    Looks great! Welcome back!!

  6. Invader_Stu says:

    Alison – Thanks :)

    Rouke – You’re right. That is a bit weird. It’s something I want to improve slightly by at least having the link on the landing page take you directly to the correct t-shirt on the page. Later on as more things get added the link on the welcome page will most likely become just one linking to the category.

    Geronimo – Thanks. The black strip is just the footer. Maybe I might make it a little less black.

    Barb – Oops. I’ll fix that quickly. And thank you for the kind words :)

    Catina – Thanks :)

    In the shop, Netherlands is spelt NEATHERLANDS :/

  8. Invader Stu says:

    Hayley – Oops. I thought I’d fixed that one. Thanks.

  9. Hayley says:

    Oh and in the links on the right: I Am-stersam should be I Am-sterdam.

  10. Hayley says:

    No problem. I’m a proof-reader, can you tell? ;-)

  11. Invader Stu says:

    Hayley – Then I feel very luck to have you looking over my site. Thanks. All those errors should be fixed now… I hope :p

  12. Hayley says:

    :) On this page it’s still NEATHERLANDS: http://www.invadingholland.com/shop/tshirts/

  13. Hayley says:

    Weird spacing, I didn’t do that!

  14. Invader Stu says:

    Hayley – Thanks again. I fixed it else where but missed the very obvious buttons :p

    It’s easier on the eyes and easier to read :]
