Original HireJohnColeman Site
To be blunt, this sort of “different for the sake of being different” design approach sort of breaks how the web works. Since a lot of the work I do is in the area of UX (User Experience) Design, with this design I am throwing away convention, which is one of the greatest UX tools at my disposal. Often, websites (or any product for that matter) is easier to use because it follows conventions that most people agree upon. Even though the site may be new to the user, the architecture and flow feel familiar.
Now, that is not to say that the world (especially the world of design) does not need change. Quite the contrary, in fact. However, change just for change sake, in my opinion, is indulgent on the behalf of the designer, especially in situations where sticking to conventions and accepted ways of doing things would make something easier and/or more pleasant to use. This original hirejohncoleman site might have been sexier from a design/eye-candy perspective, but I think the current site (the one you are on now) is not only easier to use, but gets to the heart of good UX a WHOLE lot more effectively.
