WordPress theme for hashbang.ca

In the past month, a number of people have asked about the theme for this blog. I was particularly flattered that someone even asked where I bought it.

It is just a customized version of Joey Robinson's Minimalist theme. My aim was to keep the same design principles - fast-loading, minimalism, readability - but update it to have a more modern look. One major goal was to have a truly great font via [ccie]@font-face[/ccie] on modern browsers, so I used the Junction font from The League of Movable Type. They're an awesome group of free font designers - you should check out their other fonts too!

I also rewrote the javascript with jQuery, because mootools is ugh.

The new theme is called, unsurprisingly, "Hashbang" - and is now available on Github. Enjoy!
