New digs

For someone whose job title is “designer,” you’d think I’d remember to think about the design of my blog more often. Truth is that I used to fiddle with it constantly, but since I started blogging with WordPress a few years ago it became easy to get comfortable with a theme and forget about it. I switched to Twenty Ten after I finished building it, then to Twenty Eleven because I had to have the awesome responsiveness. But yesterday I purchased my first premium theme, Portfolio by The Theme Foundry. The amount of customization that’s possible is really amazing. I took it a step further with some custom CSS and fonts from Typekit. Sometimes people assume that I’m able to customize my site beyond what a normal user can — but actually, everything I do here is using the same upgrades available to everyone. The end result probably looks nothing like Portfolio as it’s meant to be used, but that’s how I like to roll.
