Thesis Designer Profile – Designer’s Statement [Updated: 12/12/2012]
From 2001 until 2011, I ran a solo design consultancy called Hit Those Keys. My specialty was personal and solopreneur sites, particularly the hybrid of the two needed by children’s authors and illustrators. My work encompassed all the graphics, design, coding and production of the sites, and, often, the copy and the content strategy, as well. I’m still very proud of this work and my portfolio page lists some of my favorite still-active projects.
Being an admirer of Chris Pearson’s early WordPress themes, I snapped up Thesis back when it first became available and have been exploring the possibilities and potential of this highly flexible framework ever since. My own custom site at lisafirke.com still relies on Thesis.
My new focus follows on my lifelong love of making things (up) and illustrating these ideas. I publish an eccentric newsletter called Rabbit Rabbit and am preparing to launch a multimedia project called Fireplace Theater at Fireplace-Theater.org in 2013. The blog for my theater ensemble will be built on Thesis.
