Several events have converged, resulting in a new blog design and a new brand. Slicehost is shutting down, forcing me to finally migrate over to linode (which kicks ass by the way, should have moved over a long time ago) and I have finally acted on the realization that my personal brand needs to be stronger. Rather than simply copying my blog over, I used this opportunity to rebrand from my last name (hempton.com) to codebrief.com and to give it a custom design.
Having formerly been a Math and CS major in college, I have always had a penchant for green engineering pads, on which this theme is based. This theme is also open source and is up on GitHub here. Enjoy! (P.S. I really wish more designers would use version control.)
