Sneak Peek to a theme!

I finally managed to do something worth showing

"Pamphlet Vol 2" is a newspaper look-a-like theme.

I've been planning a theme like this for a long time. The accidental discovery that pushed me do it were a Free OpenSource solution to produce "column-count"-features for Internet Explorer - Multicolumn-js by Cedric Savarese.

And the fact that I do webpages for living at the moment, so css comes easily.

About the Fonts

This template uses web-fonts, which it loads directly from openfontlibrary.org". This might prove to be too slow for heavy use, and should be concidered as a demo feature.

Big headlines use a font called "Swiss Black" by Bitsream Inc. It seems to be a WIP, but works decently. I like the heavy advertisement looks of it.

For the body text I chose a Linux Libertine derivative called "Libertinage".

It is a bit unorthodox to use a serif font in the body text on a web page, but that is one of the things that makes it look like a printed newspaper.

It is commonly said that Sans-serif is more readable in the display use, but I'm not so sure about that anymore. It migh have been true back in the day, when screen resolutions were what they were, but today even cell phones have hd-ready or better displays, which results decent DPI for Serif font.

Yes, teacher, that is a slight statement from my behalf. ;-)

What is still missing?

At this point, a lot. There's no styles for images, The header needs some decoration, There are some text styles that need to be defined better, Some text styles are completely missing, And the Sidebar is pretty much a placeholder at it's current state.

All the html is in one single file. (Later on I'll chop it in to proper .php chuncks.) And the css-reset I use might be a bit of an overkill.

I have plans to publish this with a license, it could be Creative Commons, But I'll look in to other possibilities as well. If you want to use it, go ahead, no strings attached.

And if you do, I hope you mail me and let me know. :-)
