I’m going to make an effort to post more about the projects I’m working on. I haven’t posted much since I started working at iThemes in January 2010 (full time June 2010). I’ve done a ton of really exciting work, but it’s often hard to showcase it on here. But I’ll do my best to keep a more updated log of the cool stuff I’m involved in at iThemes.
I’m really excited about the most recent project I’ve been a part of — the <div> [pronounced The Div].
“The Div is a tech community hub dedicated to innovation, creativity and training for a better Oklahoma,” according to the web site we launched yesterday. A <div> in HTML is basically the place where something starts. It’s an open container ready to be filled. The purpose is to create a place where people can create. Part co-working space, part educational facility, part event space — The Div is a place we’ve set aside to promote learning and innovation for both students and professionals.
The logo is a modified mix of Futura and Neutraface elements. The DI is in Futura, and the V and <> are modified from Neutraface. League Gothic is used for the web site headers and Droid Sans is used as the body text. I used iThemes Builder (obviously) to create the WordPress theme structure and the design from there is a totally custom theme.
