A New Look
for OMW

Our New Design

I am delighted to announce a brand new look for OneMinuteWith. Well, a new look. Okay, a slightly new look. Alright, fine, it’s a small revision, but it’s still exciting!

So, what’s new?

We’ve kept the same theme, but with a bunch of improvements. Here are the most important:

Color Scheme
We’ve scrapped the yellow/green and purple colour scheme in favour of a lovely grey and red scheme. The old scheme was just getting on my nerves, and I didn’t feel it showed off your interviewee’s work in the best possible way.

Typography
This is a massive deal. Gone is the lovely Droid Serif, and in is the INCREDIBLE Vollkorn, with it’s fun but readable look. I’ve also boosted the font size, so it should be easier to read. There are a ton of typography changes, but you should be able to see that from this post.

Featured Posts
Gone. Dead. No more. This is for a few reasons. Firstly, the thumbnails being created weren’t great quality and looked pretty poor on the page. Secondly, all of our interviewees deserve equal recognition. They’re all awesome. Seriously.

Icons
The theme JournalCrunch came with some icons, but they were pretty average. I utilised some @font-face magic to bring Drew Wilson’s Pictos to OMW. They are awesome. Fact.

So those are the main changes. I really hope you find the new look better, and most importantly, easier and more fun to read!
