Not really into doing “about this site” usually but as this is my personal blog and my own digital playground, what the heck.

This site is built on WordPress and uses the theme Sprocket as a base which I have changed, tweaked, modded and hacked into my own design. As a designer and developer with a day job and freelance jobs I didn’t have the time to do a blog from scratch but hey, worst things have happened.

I used the following apps, software, sites and equipment:


  1. Photoshop
  2. Illustrator
  3. Coda 2
  4. Browserstack


  1. Headings – Brandon Grotesque from MyFonts and self hosted
  2. Body copy – Open Sans from Google Fonts
  3. Icon font – Font Awesome

Front-end dev

  1. HTML5
  2. CSS3
  3. jQuery

Designed and built with love in the UK on an Apple Macbook Air and tested using Browserstack, an iPad and a Google Nexus 5.
