A new year of WordPress Theme Design and a new Look!

So I have been hibernating in my Nordic habitat and intensely longing for the freedom of the Summer season.Meanwhile I decided the old look was too formal and being such a WordPress nerd,I had to redo the whole website’s design and put more colors and life into it.I’m really into bright colors which in my opinion look even better on a smaller,mobile phone/pad screen.I always take a great care not to have the site unfriendly to mobile platforms.Also I don’t used fluid layout as most small screen aren’t so small anymore resolution-wise.
