Colophon Gavin Wye
September 2019


Yea, I know colophons are a bit eye-rolley. This serves as a reminder to me of how this was built.

Built by hand using Atom on a MacBook Pro in HTML5 using Harry Roberts The real HTML5 boilerplate and CSS initially generated by Gridlover which I used to set the vertical rhytham.
I also use Eric Myers Reset CSS to provide some sensible defaults.

Typeset in Barlow and Barlow Semi Condensed which are both produced by Jeremy Tribby and served from Google fonts.

The site itself is served from GitHub pages. To publish changes, I open a pull request against this repo. Merging that pull request deploys the site and gives me a nice version history.

I chose each of these things primarilarly because they were the simplest things I could find. After talking to Adam Silver who reminded me that the internet hasn't really changed in the last 20 years and all the things we've done to make things better have really just confused things.
