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.

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.

Redo – a culture generator

9 June 2016

Supporting the bachelor’s thesis of my friend Vincent I made a little website that offers something like a “culture generator”. Using random (rarely seen) YouTube videos, photos and drawings, the website generates random art on every visit.
