The website you see before you is a WordPress site. Its theme, nerdology, is of my own make and was coded when I found spare time between April and November 2015. It’s a replacement to nerdology 1.0– a clunkier, more crowded theme I designed in 2010 and tweaked here and there through the years as I learned more web design (see the old theme here if you so desire).
The theme is based on a few concepts:
- 8-bit video games
- 1970s-1980s computers and terminals
- Some applications I once designed in HyperPad, an MS-DOS clone (of sorts) of HyperCard
I do not claim to be a professional web designer; it’s more of a hobby and a skill I can use if needed. If you are a seasoned designer you may find flaws. Feel free to point them out to me. If they’re actually flaws and not just occupational snobbery, I will probably fix them and learn something in the process.
I probably won’t release the theme to the WordPress repository, and I probably won’t release it to the public either. If you ask really nicely, I may consider.
