Usually I wouldn't post a dribbble of one of our product releases but I am particularly proud of this one. I think that it deserves a shot.
I designed The Writer with the aim of servicing writers of long content. I didn't want it to look like any other blog, so removed as much clutter as I could.
What I'm really happy about though is the typography. I used three fonts in this design: Lato, Gravitas One and Georgia and I think the combo works really well. When adjusting the type I wanted to make sure that long articles did not seem long and obviously it had to read well on a phone too.
When I uploaded some demo content, and started testing on my phone, I found myself reading all the articles by default. So the end result was exactly as intended.
If you view it on your iPad or Phone I wanted it to feel as if you had a glossy magazine in your hand. To do so we check the height of your screen and automagically resize the background image to fit. A nice solution to create that glossy/quality feel.
Hope you like it as much as I do, you can view the theme here and here.

Nice work dude, classy stuff!
Incredible work guys, you are write to be "particularly proud" of this one. Best of luck with it.
Also, you should post all your releases to Dribbble, there's nothing wrong with that.
Great work guys - very similar in concept to my most recent themes also, focusing on content seems to have been lost in recent years for WP themes, so it's refreshing to see you also taking up the challenge of content first and a beautiful seamless experience from one device to another.
