Colophon


I made this thing

I couldn't tell you what version this site is currently sitting in. I have it somewhere between v6 and v7 for this layout alone. It's a constant project that will never not be a work in progress.

I built it using Kirby, which is a terrific flat file CMS that's just simple enough for me to mix and match into something functional. Lot's of flexibility with room for custom extension. Straight up, no bullshit templating and content organization.

Shout out to Blake Patton and Brandon Patton for helping out with some JS bug sniffing and improvements. They're doing God's work by helping me with my various nooby questions.

Everything is set in Wei Huang's Work Sans. One of my favorite grotesque sans faces to come out in recent years. I've begun to adopt it as the typeface for all my self-branded materials. It's flexible and has a nice bit of personality to it. For the type geeks out there, I used smartquotes.js to make sure I paid my respects to the extreme detail-work Wei invested into this typeface.

As far as other tidbits go, I'm doing this all on a late 2015 Macbook Pro. I know. Shocker right. It's arguably the best laptop ever made. Get that touch bar mess out of here.

I like using Sublime Text and Hyper and I primarily design for screens in Sketch but use anything from Photoshop to Illustrator and the rest of them between.
