It's taken a massive push, but I'm happy to announce that the new HeadwayRocket site is now online. While there are definitely lots more refining to do, I'm pretty happy with the first version. I'm especially chuffed that I managed to take part in this years May 1st Reboot.
Today's post is going to be short and sweet, as I still got loads to do before tomorrows launch. In it, I'll be giving you a preview of Minimalist - the next Headway template that will added to to our collection once the dust has settled from tomorrows launch.
I always wondered why Headway doesn’t take advantage of the built in Gravatar function. It’s a great way to visually associate an author with a post and since WordPress supports it natively, it’s really easy to implement.
I went over the reasons why I decided against using Headway in yesterdays post, along with a breakdown of the tools I'm using. Today's post covers what you can expect on Sunday when the new site goes live, as well as what this means for existing HeadwayRocket customers.
With the launch of the new HeadwayRocket site just around the corner, I figured now would be a good time to go over why the new site is not built using Headway.
In my previous post I covered the role that HeadwayRocket has played in our small company over the past (almost) four years. This post is a preview of the first new template to be added to the collection, called Impact.
So we're nearing the end of April, 2016. It's pretty crazy to think that it's already been close on four years since Thierry and I launched HeadwayRocket in July, 2012. To say it's been a crazy ride would be an understatement.
We're excited to announce that we are trying out a range of new Headway services, so if you ever wished you had access to your own Headway expert, you now can!
We're excited to announce the immediate availability of Features version 3.0. Jam-packed with new features, it's our most jam-packed release to-date!

As part of our recent house-keeping and site updates, we recently made the decision to discontinue our Subtext block.
While updating our sites recently, we noticed a bunch of issues with the Views block in Headway 3.7, rendering the block unusable. After digging around the Types and Views forums and looking at the date it was last updated, it seems the Types and Views guys have abandoned the Views block for Headway.
Launch is our second template for Headway and is jam-packed with goodness. It has a bold design that makes it perfect for marketing, business, product launch type sites. With 16 Shared Layouts, it's our most comprehensive template yet.
It's been a while since we've posted an update, but it's definitely not due to us sitting idly by. Apart from a few secret projects, we've been hard at work updating our current blocks, to better take advantage of the new features introduced in recent versions of Headway.
We're extremely proud to announce the launch of our latest Headway offering, Toolkit. This one is not technically a block, but rather a set of tools to compliment your Headway site building experience.
While it may definitely seem like we're not very active at the moment, that can't be further from the truth. We've been hard at work at our secret new Headway product and while it's not quite ready yet, we're so excited that we decided it was high time to give you a preview.
It's been a while since we released our last block, but that is definitely not due to lack of activity! We've been hard at work on our sexy new Gallery block and we're thrilled to finally show it off!
As promised, we've been working on another update to the our Headway Contact Block, adding responsive support! This means that you're contact page will look great, regardless what device it's been viewed on!
We're happy to announce that the new version of our Contact block is now available. This was initially a maintanance release, but it's been a while since we gave the Contact block some love, so we decided to add some of the features we've had planned.
It was only last week that we pushed out the big Testimonials v2 update and now we're happy to announce the availability of Features 2.0.
Inline with our philosophy of continuous refinement, we're thrilled to announce that the next big update to our Testimonials block is now available.
It's hard to believe it's been a short two months since we launched HeadwayRocket.com and our first Headway block! Since then, we've been working full steam adding new blocks, improving our existing blocks, improving our support resources and loads more behind the scenes.

It's no secret that we're big fans of the awesome hosted email marketing platform, MailChimp. We use it on all our own sites, our client sites (where relevant of course), so it went without saying that we'd be using it for our shiny new site.
We are planing on writing a series of step-by-step tutorials, where we deconstruct our block demos showing how they were built. Which demo would you like to see explained first? Vote after the jump!

One of the areas of web and CMS development that I’ve naturally been drawn too over the past couple years is content construction. The term is commonly referred to as CCK (a term first coined by Drupal), which means Content Construction Kit.
