This website is set entirely in Basis Grotesque by the Colophon Foundry. I find it to be a perfect workhorse of a font, legible at all sizes, sufficiently characteristic to leave an impression, but neutral enough to get out of the way.

This website runs on Blot, an interface-less blogging platform that turns files and folders into a website. As the founder of Blot says: I like the simplicity and durability of plain text files.” This instance of Blot is rigged with all sorts of customizations, and I’m constantly tweaking it.

Here are some style preferences, which I’m mostly recording for myself.
