The site is a blog as well as a programmers portfolio. The blog will focus mainly on programming but it will also touch on living a healthy lifestyle, going to the gym, being able to communicate, breaking nerdy stereotypes and so on.
See the attached specifications for more details but basically I require a landing page, pages for a portfolio (list/details), pages for a blog (list/details). Each page should contain contact information such as social networking links and a contact us style form.
I already have a logo which I have attached.
I prefer minimalist designs.
I like light grey backgrounds like http://www.youtube.com although it doesn't necessarily need to be textured.
I like blue (same as in the logo).
I like nice clean fonts eg Open Sans.
I like greyscale social network icons that light up when hovered over.
I don't want to sway the designs but I've included a picture of what I was thinking...
