For the latest design iteration of my personal blog I focused on stripping the design down to its bare bones, choosing to make the written content the central focus.

I also treated this exercise as a chance to experiment with interface design and made the decision not to include traditional site navigation. Instead each page contains a series of contextual links, followed by a categorised list of posts. While unorthodox, analytics has revealed that this site has the lowest bounce rate of any that I’ve designed.

I also experimented with scrolling effects that would reveal sections of the page when the user scrolls. The effect is visually pleasing, but also serves a practical purpose, as it helps to define separate areas of content.
