Blog layout update

less than 1 minute read

The Minimal Mistakes Jekyll theme skin contrast has been replaced with sunrise.


I find the contrast skin is too sterile, the red underline animation when hovering over menu items is too bright, too loud, too much screaming to me. The blue blog post headers weren’t matching with anything else, thus not harmonious with the rest of the colors.

The new skin

The sunrise skin looks more cozy, friendly and inviting imho. The blog posts headers are pink or red and matching with the menu items. I feel this new skin better conveys how I want to present myself online. I didn’t do much blogging last year, this new skin is a good motivation to start writing again.

More updates

I’ve redesigned the showcase (its now called work), about and contact pages. Also made a separate page for certifications. Footer is also updated. I’m happy with the new version of the site. Send me a message to let me know what you think.
