Al – Eight Five – 2011

This is one of my first designs where I’ve taken someone else’s theme and pushed it a step further. I have checked with the license that the theme is released by, and it allows for individuals to make changes to the theme, as long as I do not profit directly from the theme (ie – selling it on as my own). Seeing as I used it only for my own site, this does not clash.

This idea also harks back to earlier designs of mine, but also to some designs I found around the time that I made this, where the designers were using photos of themselves to promote their work. I wanted to integrate this into my design. I also wanted to integrate my twitter feed into how the theme operated.
