Brutalist Web Design - A friend gave me design advice once. He said to start with left-aligned black text on a white background, and to apply styling only to solve a specific problem.

Very interesting! I'd love to add this as a theme to #brutaldon. But the class name changes mean that the refactor for the theme support would have to be quite a bit larger than I was planning.

Which is absolutely not a problem with brutstrap! It's a "problem" with brutaldon πŸ˜…

Though I could probably add non-conflicting class names to the brutaldon templates... :thaenkin:

@kropot damn, this feels awesome that I'm not just one such guy. Pretty using the same principles for my cleac.me internet page and going to apply similar guidelines to my blog :D

Nowadays internet became very slow and crappy place, where you can't do a thing without enabling possibility to download 3rd party js and styles. By the way, I found your analytics there 😁

@kropot oh, sorry, I misunderstood a bit. Thought you are author of this thing.. Shame on me 😳

@kropot i'm confused about how firefox' reader mode can't pick up the text from that site?

and why is *all* the source, except for the analytics js on the bottom, in a single line?

@hirojin great design doesn't mean great building :)

I would add that HTML is a semantic language. Using <article>,<i>,<p>, etc... tags to describe content is important. Learn HTML5, it's really well-thought in that regard.

@kropot to me, design is hollistic :P

from the bits on the wire to the pixels on the screen

@kropot I fuckin' love this. This hits me right in my intellectual g-spot: the intersections of Web Design, (implicit) UX design, and fine art.

@kropot but this site has a grey background O.o

It's good to see tachyons.io/ in the wild, though.

@kropot I like this, but also think that maybe it goes a little too far. Those "permalink" links were annoying me and so was the way every link looked SO MUCH different from the rest of the site.
