I recently did a little design in the browser experiment to come up with my web based resume and have desperately needed a new blog theme for awhile. I mean, the last one might have broken world records by being created in an hour and fifteen minutes, but I needed something better thought out. I had a lot of fun creating this one in the browser, too, and have Mason to thank for making me think twice about doing so.
This little number took the better part of the past 24 hours, but I'm proud of the level of detail I was able to get to during that time. I'd like to think that this is one of those themes that users will find themselves delighted with every so often as they notice another obscure piece that is more polished than your average theme.
Per usual, I took the opportunity to play around with some new and fun things in the world of CSS. There is some heavy box-shadow/gradient/border-radius goodness that Firefox and Webkit browser users can take advantage of. It's passable in IE8 and frankly I haven't fired up IE7.
I also make good use of the brand new Google Webfonts. All text is in the font Cantarell.
I feel good that this theme is quite the labor of love. I hope many will find it useful and provide feedback to make it even better.
ETA: Of course I've already noticed a bug! Grrrr....
