Wow, it’s been a while since I worked on a theme — any theme, but especially one that was just for me. Caroline.blog has used the same theme for the last, uh, four years? Maybe more?
This design started as a Codepen experiment with CSS Grid, then before I knew it, I was downloading Underscores to bring it to life. I wanted a simple design to bring the focus to my illustration portfolio — no widgets, no extras, just the content, big images, and a li’l navigation menu.
It all came together in about a day. I’m still fine-tuning things (I will forever be fine-tuning things) but I’m happy with it!
