    Website redesign!

    We have relaunched! http://www.devinthomas.com The website was redesigned by Dillard George, who also created the last iteration of the website. The redesign offers several new features:

    The biggest change is that it now uses responsive web design. That means that the website automatically scales based on the device that is being used. This is different from having a separate mobile site that has half of the website and barely functions. With responsive design it's the same website but the content is scaled and arranged based on orientation, screen size, resolution, etc. It also adjusts based on connection speed so that the site always loads quickly. The site is now easily usable on everything from budget smartphones with 3" screens up to 30" high resolution monitors, and everything in between.

    The website has a simplified page structure with fewer pages. This makes it easier to find things, and makes it easier to avoid getting lost. Everything is simpler. The new version requires less maintenance and lower hosting costs.

    The design has been modernized, and looks cleaner than ever. Low-res images have been dropped to keep everything looking sharp.

    Really nice. One small suggestion, the photos of the Damascus patterns are in alphabetical order, but when you click on the steel you want the "available patterns" are not alphabetical.

    A couple of question's too. You give pricing per inch have you thought about changing it to CM (or having both) since that's the measurement most purchases think in. Also, is the measurement after the price the size of the pattern repeat?

    Thank you for the suggestions, Bill. The measurement after the price is the thickness and width of the bar of steel, it is unrelated to the pattern.

    Love the new website! It's very easy to navigate, straight forward, and shows the passion Hoss has for making knives. Well done.
