    More work in progress for Foolious. Check out the full-view for the actual pixels. It's already coded and implemented.

    Though, I'm looking for some feedback. I'm using a serif font for the blog because it's more pleasant to read, especially with longer articles (that's probably the reason books are written in serif fonts). Though, is it a good thing to do this regarding consistency in the overall design?

    Also, to make the lines/sentences shorter (for improved reading experience) the width of the page is narrower compared to the rest of the site. Though, is it really an improvement?

    Thanks all, for the continuous support. :)

    I'd remove this inner shadow on "Older articles" button, but this is gorgeous mate! :)

    My only feedback is that it looks very generic and template-ish. It's missing something that sets it apart.

    I like it a lo'. Wouldn't mind seeing a larger line-height for the body text (or smaller font-size with the current line-height). I see what @Michiel de Graaf is saying though.

    I would disagree with Ismet, I would even recommend adding a little soft drop shadow to stand out a bit :)

    @Jack @Pascal @Ismet @Oskar Smith @Robbert thanks everyone for the kind words. ;)

    @Michiel It's a simple concept and I want the design to reflect that. Though, I definitely agree with it being generic and well.. faceless. Do you have any suggestions on how I could improve the design with this in mind? Like, should I add photography or other (more detailed) graphics? Or would you rather like to see more variation in the layout throughout the website? Any feedback is welcome, obviously! ;)

    @Yummygum Yep, a smaller font-size it is. ;)

    @Bilal I'm pretty sure there was a soft drop-shadow like five minutes ago. Ah well, I'll fix that. Thanks for noticing. :D

    Lovely work @Thom, really nice and simple. I can see why you're a bit concerned about the consistency of the type. It does look a bit strange that it goes from being all sans-serifs to serifs but it's not like it looks bad or out of place on that particular page.

    To be honest I'd usually say go for one or the other but I think if you styled the blog a bit differently from the rest of the site and gave it a bit of an identity of it's own then it might work.

    It looks really good dude. In regards to the line width and the serif, I think it's fine. Content is king and think this does a good job of honouring that :)

    Can't wait till this is launched!

    @Thom Het is heel braaf. (Excuse my Dutch, I can't think of a fitting English sentence).

    I think it's mostly due to the color palette and typefaces. Cranking up the contrast and more color variation will make it stand out a bit more.

    Love the color. Maybe a bit too much space below the menu?
