I purchased frankmtaylor.com about two years ago when I began a job search.frankmtaylor.com is my online resume, but it was really meant to be a demonstration of HTML5, CSS3, and SEO techniques. When I decided to stop my freelance business (Made by Paceaux), I migrated blog.madebypaceaux.com into what you’re reading now.
Some technical details about the blog
This site is built in WordPress and it uses a heavily hacked HTML5 theme created by Toolbox (now a child theme). I’ve reworked virtually all of the CSS and I wrote the responsive CSS by hand.
I use two fonts that I get from TypeKit. The headings are “John Doe” and the body-copy is “Jubilat”.
The line-height is set at around 1.618em and my margins are around .618em. I love the golden ratio and I find that it make very readable text.
To provide you the best page performance possible, I don’t use images in my designs. I like using CSS wherever possible to support the design.
Looks awful in IE6…
This website was written in valid HTML5 and CSS3; it was developed in and for the most modern browsers such as Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, and FireFox. I’ll apologize for how it looks in IE if you apologize for using it. The site doesn’t fail miserably in IE 7 and 8, but I really don’t care what it looks like.
