There is a worthwhile story behind my decision to setup a second domain. We’ll save that discussion for a lengthier post.

    Strange. The entire directory was cleared out for a second. I’m not going to point fingers at *cough* a grid hiccup.

  2. Phil Bowell says:

    errrrr, the site isn’t loading properly, I click the link and it loads but only whiteness appears. It then doesn’t seem to do anything.

  3. Phil Bowell says:

    Lol, is working now and was quickly after, good work! Have to say I reaaally like the new site. Looks very smart and stylish, a definate winner in terms of a simple presentation of your portfolio!

    Maybe because all the cool kids are doing it? 😉

    Oh, and I just wanted to say that the design of that little site is hot. I especially like the way you did the thumbnails.

  7. Zach Wilt says:

    Looks awesome. I wish I could design half as good as your sites.

  8. Auke says:

    Finally back with some images, Derek. Nice one!

  9. Derek says:

    Thanks for the kind comments guys. There is still a ton of work I have planned for the site. I imagine I’ll be tied up with work which will prevent me from hitting on the anticipated goals. They’re definitely on the agenda though.

  10. Derek it looks amazing! It was cool to see some glimpses of some of your other work as well, I really like some of the common themes between them.

    Nice… Im looking forward to see what you’ve got in store for the future!

    I didn’t notice until I saw the WordPress Database error while (mt) was down, but if this site on top of wordpress?

    I also love the built in agg, I’d like to integrate something like that to the homepage of

  13. Derek says:

    Yes, the backend is WordPress. I was planning on creating a mini blog which was the reason I installed that straight away.

    I am seriously this close to starting a social network for people with hatred towards Media Temple. For all the hooplah about that them I have had NOTHING but problem after problem and problem…..

    Hey Derek great page man! This sort of reminds me of a mini popurls page.

    Any way you can give us a little info on how you did it? I have been trying to find a decent way of aggregating feeds onto a page in wordpress that looks this clean forever!

    Pretty please, with sugar on top!?

  16. Derek says:

    No love? Ha. Try little time 😉 For a no frills / stress-free method of implementing multiple feeds I would recommend checking out BDP-RSS Aggregator. Concerning the rest of the site, well that’s your standard WordPress loop finessed and massaged to look like it’s not WordPress.

  17. Derek says:

    Of course. Are you planning on making something look similar?

  18. Derek says:

    I’d be interested in seeing it. My initial idea was to have – rather than RSS driven links – link titles to various categories throughout the site. Unfortunately, the ultimate decision for the site proved to be far simpler than what I had intended. Possibly something that I will work into 5thirtyone.

    No love??
