Regular visitors may have noticed already, however, I thought I’d make a formal announcement of the new theme!
It’s something that has been bugging me for a while. For the most part of last year I was using a premade theme, then at some point I coded my own with a random colour palette from Coolors. I really wasn’t happy with it, and the longer it stayed up, the more it bugged me.
The only thing I liked was the typography of the main section, so I kept that.
So next, I had a think about what I wanted for the new theme.
I knew I wanted a proper design for Elfwink. Up until now, Elfwink’s appearance has been limited to a square avatar made with a generator (which I believe is gone) and my Gaia Online avatar.
I am super happy with this design of course! 🥰 It’s everything I imagined Elfwink to be. I was initially provided with the red scarf version, but decided to change it to green to better match the colour scheme.
Here are the credits as they currently appear under the Credits heading of Start Here. If I ever change theme, then that page should be updated to suit.
- The Elfwink header artwork was commissioned by the lovely, talented Jowan. Go check out her art!
- The fern leaf background is a photo taken by Elijah O’Donnell and can be found on Pexels.
- The WordPress theme for this site was coded by me and builds upon the Foundation CSS framework and JointsWP starter theme.
- The fonts I used are Abril Fatface by TypeTogether (headings), Work Sans by Wei Huang (body text), and Copper Etched by Good Craft Supply Co. (logo) which was purchased from Creative Market.
Anyway, let me know what you think of it. (If you’re here at the point when comments have closed, you can send me an email instead.)
