A New Design Mindset
Months ago I fell in love. In love with a total new way of web design. Minimalism.
After taking a leap from the “shallow” end of web design to trying and find my feet in minimalism design, I decided to take lessons in Drupal Theming. Armed with Front-end Drupal I ventured forth into unfamiliar territory.
Loving Drupal, more.

With a better understanding of Drupal's inner workings, I felt a little more prepared to start designing this website using a style that best shows my ideas.
I did a lot of research on the web looking at different websites and noting down the little things I loved about them. Among the sites that caught my attention, the following left an imprint on my mind:

The idea of open designing appealed to me more than the alternative of promising launch dates that drift away with time. It has become my chosen path now.
