A colophon is a brief statement about how a book was produced. In this case it explains how this website was made.

I designed and built this site myself. It is optimized to have a very low carbon footprint. Everything is open souce and published on GitHub if you’d like to poke around.


I used Jekyll to generate the static files for this website. The site is deployed with Netlify so I don’t have to worry about managing a server. Images are served by Cloudinary.

I used Tailwind CSS to build and design the site theme and individual components. An atomic design framework, it provides a set of utility classes for your HTML markup. The result is a tiny CSS file (less than 10KB) without any of the bloat you find with other CSS frameworks. Scripts are vanilla Javascript. I wanted to avoid using any heavy JS libraries.

All the individual posts are written in markdown for ease of portability. My content management system (CMS) is a bunch of files and folders on my operating system. I use GitHub for version control and backups.


All fonts are self-hosted for privacy and performance. The body copy is set in Inter by Rasmus Andersson. Headers are set in Roboto Condensed by Christian Robertson. You’ll also see some supporting serif font, which is Martel by Dan Reynolds.
