New layout: softer colors

filed under: @ 10:03:05

Designing the new layout of my site, I also decided to soften the colors a bit. I'm still using just Blue, Red and a touch of Grey, plus the White background and the Black of text. This were the colors used in the previous version:

And this are the new ones:

Basically, I softened the blue (from #0000ff to #3366ff) and substituted the black(#000) with a grey-black(#333).
