When I started building this site I wanted to bring back the feel of my old Tumblr. Not that I really posted that much there, or here, but the mix of content was nice and something I missed on /weblog.
I liked the colour palette which I had found on colourlovers.com however many years ago. If I pick colours myself it always ends up being a standard white/black/accent website, which is 98% of the web and therefore boring. I also loved the way Signika Negative looked, so wanted to bring that too.
But it is 2020 and everyone is adding dark modes, so what do you do when your site is already dark?
