I Redesigned My Blog

I Redesigned My Blog

Oh look, I redesigned my blog again!

This time I went for a much cleaner, minimal look. The brighter blue is meant to make the page feel more fresh and the pure white background is much nicer than the previous grey which just made the page feel murky. I took some time to look again at typography, shortened the line length of the body text and improved the line-spacing – taking some inspiration from Wouter de Bres and using Butterick's guide. I incorporated jQuery to add in some subtle animations to make the experience more fluid and added a welcome bar inspired by Hello Bar. The mobile layout is optimised slightly too, of course.

I've love to hear any feedback you have!

See it live here.
