This site is running on WordPress 5.5 with a custom portfolio theme called Basalt. This theme was developed with crucial help and feedback from my dear friend Shreya Bhat.

The theme was designed on Adobe XD and developed on Atom. On-site layouts are enabled by Bootstrap v.4.5. Site caching and CDN is managed with Litespeed.

Site headings are set in the fabulous Mallory typeface, designed by Tobias Frere-Jones. Body text is set in the lovely Spectral font-family by Production Type Foundry.

Basalt is a classic yet minimal portfolio theme with an unobtrusive user experience. It is designed as a desktop-first, fully responsive WordPress theme and works great on all devices ranging from extra-small to extra-large.

Theme features include: Blog, Custom Front-page, Custom Header & Footer, WordPress Gutenberg Editor support, Sidebar, Widgets, Featured Images, Sticky Header, Parallax transitions, Custom Logo Support, etc.

This theme started as a personal project and has now evolved into an open-source project, but this particular theme won’t be available for download as it was designed with my personal use in mind.

A separate WordPress theme called Granite is underway, and has specially been designed for a more generalised public use and with a tonne of more features than Basalt currently supports. Granite will soon be available for free download for both personal and commercial use under Creative Commons Attribution – CC BY-SA 4.0

If you’re interested in testing out the beta version of Granite, hit me up a personal message below!
