Shelf, now in stock!

24 Nov 2010

It’s been an awful lot of work to get what was on the face of it, a simple idea, finally released. After 4 months of design, development and bug-fixing, my Shelf theme for The Theme Foundry is now available for Wordpress and Tumblr. This is a time of both joy, pride and nervousness!

I’ve been working with Yan Sarazin of Statik Pulse, who has implemented the javascript side, and Brandon Dove who converted the HTML & CSS design into the final Wordpress Theme. Along with Drew Strojny who commissioned the theme, the team has been a joyful experience to work with! I’ve also learned a lot about using Git from this project, which has been an unexpected bonus.

I’ll be doing a more thorough write-up of the process and what interesting challenges we had to solve along the way, but in the meantime, there is a Flickr Set where I’ve been documenting the process, and Drew has a written a post to introduce Shelf.
