Klima.com is live! Here are some learnings.

We already launched in December last year but I didn’t blog about it, so here’s a belated celebration: Klima.com is live! It’s a website that Jonas, co-founder and CPO of Klima, designed and I had the pleasure of implementing. It accompanies the launch of the Klima apps on iOS and Android and provides more information about our product, the company behind it, and general climate news.

My favorite websites of 2020

I’ve finally found the motivation to compile a list of my favorite websites! These following pages are very cool™ because they either look super nice, offer great content or do both. And they don’t feature the current trends that make the web worse: Offensive advertising, affiliate-based opinion making, obsessive user tracking. Let’s get started.

Awesome Multiplayer Games, the site

Do you like playing games with other people? If so, you might often wonder what to play while looking at huge lists of games in your library or some game shop.

I wanted to make this easier and learn some new technology on the side (in this case backend development with NestJS), so I built a little webapp for finding awesome multiplayer games: multiplayer.page!

It’s also easy to add your own entries if you have a GitHub account – you’ll find all information here: https://github.com/herrherrmann/awesome-multiplayer-games – In fact, quite some people stumbled over this repo already and added new games which is fantastic!

In this sense: Game on and long live open source. 🕹

A re-design (again): Silver Ratio

About two years after the last re-design I decided to give it another go and optimize my site’s design again. This time I paid special attention to the selection of fonts in order to achieve consistent and readable typography. You’ll also notice that most of the decorating elements are gone in order to “let the letters speak” for themselves.

Before (Tea Time) and now (Silver Ratio).

Because it’s not exactly the golden ratio, I named this theme “Silver Ratio”. Its code is available on GitHub.

P.S.: In hindsight I realized that my layout and font choices (and maybe the whole idea of the re-design) was greatly inspired by the blog of Jan Heuermann! Thanks for that, Jan.
