Background Image Bliss

March 7th, 2011

Design is always better served when it comes with a side of functionality.

Website background images vary from the mundane to the vector-art overreaching to the heavy page loading. It is rare to find one that really works well. Mostly they are used for cool branding and design efforts. Sure they tell a story, but it is usually without much substanance.  The recent redesign of VPS.net. afforded a look into a background image that is both a cool design and functional treatment. The global map highlights are their CDNs (content delivery networks). This PNG allows you to see the map at a better contrast:

Here is how the map is layered into the site:

Nice design. Great visual.

A Drupal, A VPS, a shell access

September 2nd, 2010

Three things I’m loving right now:

  1. Drupal
  2. VPS – specifically VPS.net
  3. SSH – how did I ever live without this tech jargon and shortcut-riddled world?

And a great article tying all 3 together has been super helpful as well written and documented. Thanks Davy! Sweet last name too bro!
