Projects

Milton Wordpress Theme

Milton has been designed to be a comfortable, non-linear reading experience. And can be optimised for single, personal use, or for multi-user teams.

As you can see, the main reading experience is carefully designed – large bold title in the header, strong introductory paragraph and consistent, readable body text all creates an enjoyable reading experience. Naturally the typography holds down to mobile: this is a responsive website layout.

Featured content and sponsored ads can be shown the in Sidebar, and social links are prominent at the foot of each post.

Milton also supports right to left languages, is translation ready and supports the new accessibility features in Genesis 2.2.

Vienna Writing Wordpress Theme

Vienna is a theme designed for publishing words: Sure, you can also publish images, just as with any blog. But Vienna really shines for long-form writing. Naturally it is fully responsive and looks beautiful on tablet and mobile.

Professional designers will appreciate such details as the correct use of cursive italic text and small-caps, beautiful display typesetting, and professionally set body-text that combine to create a comfortable reading experience:

This theme requires no particular setup, but if you need any help at all feel free to tweet to me @derrybirkett.
