New Layout

After years of laziness and lack of inspiration, I've finally got a new theme up for my update log. Mind you, this design took 2 days to complete, albeit it was the CSS and how I want everything formatted that were rather time-consuming as I wanted to keep this design simple and legible. When Spring came, I finally thought there needed to be a more colourful and pastel looking appearance because I've always wanted something filled with all kinds of different shades in comparison to previous versions. The problematic element with my last version was the how complex Wordpress was which I had to repeatedly figure out how to make my own personalized theme work with this script which really bothered me to no end, but at least it lasted for over a year.

In essence, I had to be more open with my choice of fonts to complement this design. Did you know that choosing the right font for your layout actually affects your design? It was the font type, size, and color that gave me a whole different feel to this layout, but I digress. As for the background, I would normally keep simple, like a basic pattern or texture. However, that changed as I was browsing for inspirations when I decided to give botanical line art with organic shapes a try. To my surprise, this pattern in particular went well with this layout; it didn't keep my site too busy as I only did necessary lighting adjustments and color changes. Overall, I do love the simplicity of this design; it's refreshing and this is probably going to stay up for a while.
