When I overhauled this site’s look a month or so ago I appealed for help choosing the colours. Like picking the right drapes, it’s all a bit beyond me.
Fortunately, help arrived in the form of a hitherto unknown reader (or possibly random passer-by) of this site, Gary. He suggested that:
How about using the colours from your much loved, much photographed macchiato? That distinctive green and white cup and saucer, those coffee colours – creams and rich browns and perhaps even the gold trim on the saucer. I think they just might work…
What a good idea, I thought. Why didn’t I think of that? (Answer: I’m not a designer.) So now, after several weeks of painstaking and clumsy hacking, I present my overly literal interpretation of Gary’s idea.
Actually, maybe I do like it. I think it can be hacked a bit to make it a little less overpowering. But I can’t be bothered right at the minute.
So, I present to you: my homage to Mojo.
