So while checking out one of my favorite blogs (Scott Hansen’s beautifully curated blog over at ISO50), I ran across this amazing stuff from Matthew Lyons. Its vintage. Its awesome. It makes me want to plaster it on my walls and smile.

2010 has brought a new year, a brand-spankin’ new site design, and a fresh stab at keeping a blog running. We’ll see how it goes. This new look, now version 3.0, I wanted to be a case study in simplicity.
My goals for the site:
1. Make it scalable – 1024 and up.
2. Keep it mind-numbingly simple. Nothing but the necessary.
3. Make something awesome.
First off, I wanted this site to work well with my all time favorite font, Knockout. Second, it needed to function like an online gallery space for my web projects. I felt like a heavier site could easily be a distraction. Gimme a nice grid and some white space and that, to me, is good design. Third, I wanted to rebuild a custom WordPress setup for my previously-stated second stab at keeping my blog moving. (Indeed, the interwebs truly need my musings).
