Spring cleaning

You may have noticed that I’ve given my website a bit of a spring clean. Essentially I’ve tried to make the whole site feel a bit ‘lighter’ and that’s involved removing the orange panel at the top of each page to try and give the content more room to breath.

I’ve also implemented a new typeface and after some deliberation I went for Avenir, a stylish geometric sans-serif typeface designed in 1988 by Adrian Frutiger.

Avenir, meaning “future” in French, is friendly, easy to read and elegant. Frutiger designed Avenir with “human nature” in mind and it certainly comes across as a very harmonious typeface.

I hope you like the changes. As always if you’ve got any comments on any aspects of the site do let me know.
