A WordPress Theme

Joshua Lane / / 5 Comments

A few weeks back I was looking through my portfolio and was saddened to see that a couple of really good pieces weren’t online anymore. One, in particular, was a design for this blog’s predecessor… even before came about. Instead of keeping that design locked up (and never to be seen again), I’ve decided to release it as a theme for wordpress. I’m not sure how long it will take to modfiy the layout, but I hope this small thumbnail will satiate you until it’s complete.

Bliss Theme Some of you may actually recognize that layout. I know Nathan will, because I’ve already showed it to him. For the rest of you, it was online for a few weeks in early 2005 (January/February-ish). It even made its way into a couple of CSS design galleries.

Why did I take it down? Well, at the time, there were A LOT of people throwing up “design” blogs. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, I just wanted to do something different. Thus, NewInPhilly was born. Anyways, hopefully the near future will bring about my “Bliss” wordpress theme… sometime in late May perhaps?

How you torment your readers!

You are either a devious and evil man who enjoys embedding tiny little thumbnails of what looks to be a more than promising template so as to tease your readers into a frenzy, or you are benevolent and kind and will make a tidy link to a larger version to satiate our desire to view the piece!

Seriously, that looks bloody awesome. Even from the tiny bit I can see, I am greatly admiring your chosen color palette.

Ooh, hey – I recognize that! :)

Edward: It will be worth the wait, because Joshua has done some very nice work on this template / theme.

Josh: I still stick by my Textpattern installation, you shant tempt me into using WordPress!

This is the first time I’ve visited your site. The colors you use on your site is indeed very nice. Looking forward to see it in action. I’ll be back. :-)
