A quick redesign thanks to Twitter Bootstrap

My friend Tito has a small biotech hardware company he's run on the side for several years. He wanted to do a quick refresh of the website so we took a crack at a redesign and after a couple of hours of work, here are the results:

What really blew me away was how powerful Bootstrap is for whipping together a simple, static website. Basic layout, buttons, cross-browser compatibility, modals–most major components just work and are bundled for easy use. Tito had been using Wordpress to manage the site but it was way to bloated and overly complicated for his use-case.

I wonder if Wordpress will adapt to create a more lightweight version to serve a lot of the smaller, single-author projects being produced, or if another tool will eventually supplant them? Maybe Weebly?
