Web Theme Redesign: Going Monochrome

tags: blogging, web-design

Edit (Feb 14 2020): I decided to make a small update to the website by incorporating colors using Material Design guidelines. If you have issues seeing anything on the site, please let me know by contacting me.

As much as I love Nord Theme, I was growing tired of the color scheme on my web site. I decided to change things up and also simplify the the number of color variables I had in my SCSS files. After reading about readability and accessibility when choosing colors in this article, I decided to constrain myself to a completely monochromatic, gray color scheme.

I really like how it looks so far, but I might fine tune the shades of gray I’m using for the layout. I also asked my friend Lauren Beecher to update my avatar to use my natural skin tone and hair color, which I’ll likely re-add to the site once that’s ready.

Let me know what you think by contacting me.
