Like a Phoenix, rising from the flames
I had been intending to move from WordPress for some time. While it is a good CMS, it's very bloated and the frequent updates to both the core and all the plugins require frequent maintainance. In short, though I intended WordPress to make life easier for me in the previous iteration of the site, it was beginning to feel a bit needy, always needing attention.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, though, and I had numerous other priorities. Long story short, the decision was taken out of my hands. The old site got hacked in early April and rather than re-installing from one of the weekly backups, it gave me the impetus to get cracking on a new build.
Not that I'm going to thank the hacker.
I'm going to take an agile approach to the build, uploading sections as I finish them. This means that large sections of the site are currently either not built or are unfinished. I will be working at it on a daily basis though, and estimate being reasonably complete in 2-3 weeks. The typography section remains intact, as it never fell under the Wordpress framework.
Thanks for your patience,
Update 30.4.16:I've added the design section, which will act as a template for the rest of the site. Expect further updates soon.
