I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Site Updates

Any­one would think I’m a bit of a glut­ton for pun­ish­ment. Most people spend their week­ends relax­ing, I seem to spend mine think­ing about work, my blog and side pro­jects that I want to start. This week­end I finally fin­ished one of those little side pro­jects which I’ve worked on in my spare time. A little update to the design of this site to replace the last ver­sion which was only ever inten­ded as a bit of a stop gap, even though it was up for the best part of a year.
The design will be famil­i­ar to most of you, who’ve been before. It’s largely an update to the typo­graphy of the site, which now uses Adelle Sans for the head­lines and Adelle for the body copy. I’ve also finally added a prop­er about page, archives page and a site search which were lack­ing from the pre­vi­ous version.
Part of the desire to update the look of the site came from me want­ing to be able to share more ori­gin­al con­tent. I wanted to be able to post some pho­tos, and use that as a spring board to begin using my cam­era more regularly.
I also took the oppor­tun­ity to learn how to imple­ment some of the respons­ive design tech­niques I’ve been read­ing about and to see how it worked with images. I’m pretty pleased with the res­ult and the read­ing exper­i­ence on the iPhone and iPad.
There may be a few little tweaks here and there over the next couple of weeks, when is a bog own­er nev­er tweak­ing the design of the site? But for now, I’m pretty happy with it.
