new and improved ideas

December 1, 2008 | 4 Comments

From the How I Spent My Thanksgiving Break department comes a new blog design. The new look went live yesterday, though I still have a few tweaks to make here and there.

I’ve used the Thesis theme for a few different sites, but this is the most extensive reworking of it that I have done. I set out to do a full theme, but I like the look of how Thesis handles the main content, so I ended up morphing the project into a new wrapper for Thesis.

The header image has a composite of two images — one is a skyline of Austin, and the other is a picture of the Areopagus. The Areopagus is connected to the name of this blog. Somehow, I hope both of those images can serve as a reminder that this blog is my own meandering through the connections between the culture of Austin and God’s work within it.

  • i like it.

  • What would be required to get this template for one of my blogs?


  • Excellent use of Thesis if you ask me.

    (Which I’m sure you would have if you had the chance.)

  • Brent,
    Is this an excellent use of Thesis? Was just curious what your opinion might be. 🙂

    Thanks for the kind words. It’s a few weeks old and I’m not tired of looking at it…that’s a good sign.
