New WordPress Theme: Notepad 88

New WordPress Theme: Notepad

I'm back into the WordPress theme design. Check out my latest release — the Notepad theme. Inspired by the iPhone’s Notes app, Notepad is a modern theme with a subtle touch of the sketchy and texturized background. The theme is widget compatible with threaded & paged comments, social media buttons, and multi-level dropdown menus. It has been tested on WordPress 2.9 with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE7+. Users with CSS3 compatible browser will see the nice visual enhancement such as drop shadow and rounded corners. Check out the demo site and share your comments.

Follow Me on Twitter @nickla

Finally, I've joined Twitter (follow me @nickla). At the moment, I don't really have any tweets yet. The main reason I've started Twitter because I'm redesigning N.Design Studio and I want to be able to post updates and in-progress images for readers. Also, if you have a moment, please let me know what kind of tweets best interest you.
