Now that I am down to the final build details of our latest theme, I figured it was a good time to show off what we have been working on. My personal site is in desperate need of a refresh, so I decided to focus on features and details I want for my own site. Strands will be the perfect theme for lots of short posts combined with long-form articles.
The theme should go live at the end of this week or first thing next week.
The name Strands is inspired by the beach that you can find me at most weekends in southern Orange County.

Only comments I have are the posts have a small drop shadow, but the line with the dots doesn't (from what I can see in the attachment) and that looks a little odd. Then the "likes", "notes", and "refresh?" icons (white against the gray) look a bit soft compared to the overall crispness of the design. Could just be that the contrast of the white against the light gray background isn't quite strong enough. Those elements get kinda lost to me.
But these are small gripes. You guys continue to pump out high quality themes and this one fits right at home with the rest of the Style Hatch portfolio. Nicely done!
@Phil Coffman Good points on the line and dots! It should be a easy thing to give a touch of depth purely in CSS. The challenge with designing themes is balancing between 'baked in' design elements and keeping elements customizable. In the case of the center line, users will have the ability to change it from white to any color that best complements their background image.
The icons (font-face) do look a lot more crisp in the actual build, but I did want to purposely downplay the note and comment count. With a grid layout and dozens of posts on the screen at once a bolder approach can start to look repetitive and compete with the content itself.
Dude, this is nice man. Great work.
Nice work man. Great attention to detail.
quality work. First time I can say I like the use of purple :)

Wrapping up all of the responsive states in the build. I love the final phase of any project where you polish every last detail.
