is the design of kevin kennedy


I just upgraded to WordPress 3, so far so good.

I’m not sure who decided that the top bar in the admin interface needed to be lighter, but I can’t say I agree with that decision. In terms of value, now everything is in the foreground, and there is virtually no contrast in the interface, no sense of “header” versus “sidebar” versus “content area,” now it’s just “content area.

I think I would have left the header dark, and made the sidebar dark as well, that way the focus is more on the actual editing versus the navigation bits.
