Yesterday, while I was installing Mountain Lion, I had some free time off screen. I figured it was a perfect opportunity to sketch out some ideas for my theme project.
Since I said I’d share my brainstorming here, well, here you have it!
I want the theme to be blog focused, but on the homepage I’d like to have either a dedicated area or a larger than normal sidebar for more static information, like an “about” widget. You can also see a concept for the portfolio / services section to be visible on just about any page. The single post layout would definitely include a nice featured image, but a video or audio post format could also utilize that space. Also, the sidebar would be a little more subtle on interior pages, to make way for the content.
I’m struggling a bit with the portfolio. You can see in the image on the right, somehow my pen just started drawing a mega slider, and before I knew it, there was slider inside a slider! I’m going to have to modify that : ) Anyway, I’m getting some ideas on paper, and soon I’ll have something to show you with a URL attached.
