New Theme for This Site

I FINALLY finished updating the design for this site!

(Note: This is a recaptured screenshot in Setp. 2011)

This is a completely original theme I made from scratch especially for this site, and sorry, I’m not planning on releasing as public theme. Of course, feel free to take a look at the sorce code and css – as long as you don’t use images or the “whole” code without attribution. If you are not sure, just ask.

You might wonder, “what’s with these garbela daisies all over the site?” Well, in fact it’s just my favorite kind of flower. I know this (“I just like it”) is pretty lame explaination for any kind of design work – but when it comes to a personal site, that could mean a lot. I’m trying to stick with a continous color choice (undertoned pink) along with garbela imagery to build a recognizable “brand” for this site.

After all, Apple gave apples a whole new meaning!

This is a list of plugins I started using with this new theme.

flickrRSS
For inserting Flickr images in the header section.
Feed List
For pulling del.cio.us on the index page.
monthchunks
For compact monthly archives list at the bottom of each page.

    I could not agree more with Niklas! It is SO rare to find beautiful, sensual and yet reader friendly webdesign. Yours is all the three.

    I have just opened a blog at blogsome.com and I am using your template. I will probably write the blog both in English and in Finnish.
