This was a personal project to showcase some of my own writing. I wanted a simple one-page site with a dark and striking look to set the atmosphere, with a heavy black-and-white aesthetic, while still being minimal.
The theme was custom-built for WordPress and is fully responsive across all screen sizes. The site has some unusual features such as profile pictures for users (without any social plugins) and AJAX lazy loading on the front page with real-time category and author pickers which store selections in the user's session so that they are not lost when the front page is navigated away from.

Although very functional, the idea behind this site was to make it visually striking and to focus more on the design and atmosphere than functionality. However, the minimalist simplicity was still not to take any functionality away from the user. A nice balance was struck between stylish and practical!
