You’ll Love The Things He Finds

Common

Giving a shoutout to my boy, jbarks, one of the snappiest designers I know who appreciates the clean, simple and minimal layout. He’s launched Common, that is in his own words, “an online repository of things i find”.

It’s got a beautiful layout, with nice big pictures and snappy words. Everything the communications geek in me loves.

Words, Tackles And Misdirections

MisdirectionWell, if you’ve stepped back in here after an absence (much like I have), you’ll notice that the blog looks different. In fact, it looks exactly like my personal blog, harmless? bananas!

Here’s the thinking behind it:
I’m not a design guru in any sort of way, and I couldn’t seem to find a theme that fitted the personality behind the content. I found the R755 Lite theme quite perfect for what I wanted to achieve on the personal blog, in terms of layout, minimalism, navigation and content management and decided that I would apply those same ethos’ to this blog.

I think it works. I feel more at ease posting content knowing how it’s going to end up, and controlling a small bunch of things that I have the capacity to.

This also means there will be a downsizing of what I originally wanted to achieve with a blogzine, with beautiful and seamless content management, perfect design that really gave an air of taking a publishing craft seriously. Alas, not today my friends. I just do not have the means and capacity to fulfill those roles today.

So one thing at a time, let me offer you daily content that makes sense first, and maybe one day, it will grow into the platform I envisioned it to be. In the meantime, do stick around if you like what I deliver on a daily basis, thing’s that could make your day just a tad better.
