Tim Butt 2's New Design

Updated on October 21, 2012, 3:56 PM - Written by Tim Buttner


I wanted to redesign Tim Butt 2's website for over a year before proceeding with execution. In that time I learned a lot about web design concepts and ideas that I had no previous knowledge of. This included PHP & MySQL databases, CSS3, HTML5, and more. Although I had some base knowledge on some of these subjects I explored and experimented with them long before implementing them on this site.

One Forest Films was a huge testing ground for a lot of this, just as it had before I built the original Tim Butt 2 site. I'm proud with what I accomplished there for the Members and Profiles using PHP & MySQL, going even more complex in my design and coding than anything before. It made the redesign of this site easer.

Before I started redesigning, I brought some of those concepts over. Such as the News section, since I did so well with it on One Forest Films. I always wanted my site to have a more prominent News arena. A place for me to write and escape the confines of Blogger. I also wanted a place to freely write and self-publish. This is that place.

I hope that you enjoy the new design. I know I do. And please feel free to visit One Forest Films and become a member. There's no better place for a member of the film community to feel at home.
