While updating the back-end of the site, I also decided to give the front-end a makeover. A more magazine style interface that also promotes some projects and things I do. Hypernarrative is not just a blog, it’s also a personal timeline.
The color black gives it a magazine/portfolio style interface. I haven’t figured out if black is optimal for reading.
I use a five column design based on a 960 pixel width. The website has a Flash header, I’m not sure yet what to do with this, but I like something interactive. The site looks best on a Mac because they have the Helvetica and Rockwell fonts installed. If you have Windows you will see a combination of Courier and Arial, which is pretty nice as well.
I tried sIFR for font replacement, but didn’t like the loading speed of this.
The header picture was taken in the room of a bed and breakfast in France.
