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.
Before and now.
That’s basically it!
And I’m also planning to open-source this new theme because I hand-crafted it carefully and I think it might be useful for other people/bloggers/WordPress users, too. I’m just doing some last adjustments and fixes right now, so it’ll probably appear online and hackable in a few weeks.
Update: The theme is now being developed on GitHub.
Happy birthday, HerrHerrmann (this site)!
I’m online since 2007 (originally as “bastArt”) and I guess there are still many years to come.
A few days ago I received the following message:
we visited your site. the look and feel of your website is not good. We are proffessional web developers. We can redesign your website. You can contact us. These are some example of our work.
We are available in concrete5.org forum.
I’m really not sure how to handle offers like that!
My resume (Lebenslauf) is online! You can find the full version on the About Me page. It’s free! :P
Update: Due to spam from recruiters (even phone calls from abroad), I decided to remove the resume again. Feel free to inquire about it (if you’re not yet another lame recruiter)!
