By now, I’m sure you can see Illuminated Mind has a brand new look. I’ve been working on this new design for the past few weeks, with a lot of coding help from Ryan (thanks man!). If you need web development expertise, Ryan is definitely the guy you want to hire.
To say I’m excited about the new design would be an understatement — it’s been a long time coming. The message and direction of Illuminated Mind has really outgrown the original design and brand. I think it’s about time that the medium matches the message.
Please let me know if you find any bugs or kinks, as I’m still working out some of the little details. And some minor details may still change in the next few days, but this new look is staying.
What’s under the hood
If you’re wondering what this new design was built with, it was created entirely within the new, totally badass Headway Theme for WordPress. It’s the first ever drag and drop theme. Customizing it has been easier for me than any other theme I’ve ever worked with. And yes, I’ve tried Thesis. Nothing can really compare with Headway.
So if you’re looking for a totally kickass theme that lets you easily create custom layouts in a drag and drop way, I highly recommend that you check it out. It has my full endorsement.
Let me know what you think
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the new design and the new direction for Illuminated Mind. I think it definitely represents my message much better, as well as the entire community of unconventional individuals that frequent this space.
That’s all for now. I’m going to get back to work on The Zero Hour Workweek, that free ebook I promised you. Even more exciting stuff is on its way…
