And I'm not very good at it yet! So I've created this test page where I'm trying out a bunch of different features that might be useful. I've already set some typography styles in place, so I'm just kind of messing around with the modules and seeing what I can get away with.
Wow, I wonder how to make these gaps between paragraphs smaller. This is like a pre-fab section for images with captions.
Have I mentioned that I also build airplanes? I think hobbies are helpful for blowing off steam.
For my next trick, I'm going to try a multi-column text layout. I'm a little nervous about how that's going to go. If you don't hear from me, it's because I'm trapped between columns.
As you can see, I take marbling very seriously. I consider myself something of an expert.
Did you catch that inline style right there? I guess that's working fine. So is this one.
It looks like I can't remove these ridiculous images — only replace them. Yuck.
I'm a creative. A dreamer. An attention-seeker. I'm passionate about solving complex problems with visually flattering solutions. I live in Brooklyn, Florida with a cat named Otis and a hammerhead shark named Spanky.

Let's try some of these — the good news is that you can link the images to anything, so it'd be easy to build some kind of gallery system. And there are tons of prefab formats to help get things started. I'll show some of those next.
I don't know about this... I'm trying to figure out how it was constructed. It looks like this is just a new section, but filled with an alternating assortment of images, text boxes, and spacer columns to give this kind of randomized effect. Hm.
So, it looks like I can add in more text boxes into this layout as I need to... It's just a little unpredictable. I don't know if it would be harder or easier to start from scratch.
If you can afford this stuff, climate change will not impact you.
It looks like through manipulating offset controls, I can float PNGs across sections like this. Could be useful for continuity between ideas, or to add some dimensionality to the layout. A little hard to control, but shows promise.
I have no idea how this was implemented, but I like the interactive, text-based approach.
I like how restrained but also approachable this one is — walks a fine line very well (and is super usable).
Example of how people use this theme to draw out the course of a project in a detailed, dynamic layout.
This is a great example of a really cohesive site that works as a living CV and a portfolio. Very consistent visuals.
