Daily Design

I’ve struggled to find a resource to teach me better design skills, to go from workmanlike to beautiful.

On the advice of Best Beloved (after reading it eleventyleven other places for years) I finally started practicing what I already knew. Since October 28th I’ve designed something every single day. It’s a bit of a random harvest, but I already see trends I’m happy with.

The long term goal is better website design, for myself and others, but I’m less than a month in, so I’ll accept fun abstract images as a start.

As a web developer with 20 years of experience it feels like cheating to use an off-the-shelf WordPress theme.

Finally got around to creating a new theme from scratch based on the _s framework (that’s pronounced underscores and it’s made by the people who make WordPress.)

I’m calling it iNoir. Maybe Apple will sue me, but the “i” is for “introspective.”

Still need to flip a few switches to make it fully mobile-friendly.

I hope I don’t break it.


If you see anything broken, please please let me know. It’s hard to test everything.
