Hi! My name is Vincent Maglione (that’s pronounced ‘mal-YO-neh’). My last name roughly translates from Italian as “big sweater,” and I’m a guy from Atlanta who designs websites using the latest in Web standards and open-source technology.


About Big Sweater Design

Big Sweater Design was born around the fourth quarter of 2005. It’s a one-man show, run by me, Vincent Maglione.

I specialize in building sites that help make the Web a prettier, more accessible place. In particular, I build sites using:

  • Web standards, as dictated by the W3C (as long as I can help it, your website will validate according to the W3C’s specification for XHTML Strict);
  • CSS-based design and layout;
  • WordPress as a blogging and content management platform;
  • and free, open-source tools wherever possible.

What does all this mean for you? Read on »

This is a job I had last year, here to fill in the “Featured” position till I finish adding content and my up-to-date portfolio to the site.

Regardless, I’m fairly proud of the site.

Barry Holder final design

Barry Holder approached me for a site; he needed something that reflected his personal building style as well as his integrity and attention to detail. I tried to incorporate all that into the site design, and so far, reviews have been positive. The site is built in hand-coded XHTML 1.0 Strict, except for the image gallery, which is ZenPhoto and Lightbox powered.

Although they’re still working on getting content to the site,  I’m pretty proud of the results.

Site down time

April 27th, 2009

Sorry to anybody who noticed the brief downtime. A billing gaffe left my domain unavailable for a time.

I know I’ve neglected the blog for the past couple of weeks. However, new work is on its way. Promise. :)
