I spent an hour or two yesterday tinkering with this blog’s colour scheme — switching it from oppressive greys to a somewhat lighter feeling. The colour and font choices were inspired — by which I mean copied and pasted from — Quanta Magazine’s beautiful Arrows of Time page, although my lack of design skills has produced something much clumsier and more homely looking.
I also experimented with adding a few images. There’s still a lot of work to do with those, partly because I’m not really sure what purpose I want them to play. I don’t want them to take over the page, but I don’t want them to seem like little thumbnails. They’re also way too heavy and not very responsive. Hugo has some image processing abilities that may be helpful, but looking into them will have to wait for next weekend.
