b2evo skin: VastitudeThe Vastitude b2evo template is a design I completed a couple weeks ago but never got around to posting about. It’s a design inspired while looking through a series of photos of the Grand Canyon and the wide open flatlands of Arizona.

This b2evo skin was designed to give the look and feel of open expanses of red clay desert under steel grey early morning skies. The completed blog template has something of a somber, melancholy mood, which was unintentional, but I think the overall design turned out nicely.

The Vastitude skin for b2evolution follows closely in the footsteps of previous b2evo skins released in the ‘Smoothe’ series and is 100% XHTML Transitional compliant. It uses valid CSS 2.0 style sheets. Additionally, as with previous releases in the ‘Smoothe’ series of b2evo skins, Vastitude has been designed for 1024x768 monitor resolution.
