Yet Another Blog Theme


hey look! CSS!

It’s that time again, when I decide a couple of weeks is far too long to have the same old theme for my blog.  I have to say, I think I may have an addiction of sorts with CSS and discovering all the fancy new things it is capable of in Firefox 3.5+.  From all the glorious fonts I am now able to use, to the experiments with box-shadow, there’s never a dull moment.

This latest theme was built pretty much from scratch.  I started with the un-theme called Starkers – a bare-bones theme with zero CSS design.  Using that as my canvas I played around with the layout and hackery skills I’ve developed along the way and came up with what you see before you.  I’m enjoying it (for the time being) for its cleanliness and use of font as main design element.  I’m thinking more of my designs moving forward will utilize font as one of the core foundations to the work.

So there you have it.  A new month, a new theme.  This time, no longer simply taking someone’s already built WordPress theme and modifying it, but a “from scratch” work.  It’ll evolve I’m sure, but let me know what you think.
