    As I move toward a publisher model and slowly move away from the service model in my business, I designed this site using the Mindstream child theme.

    I intended to have a more “visiting card” style personal site that gives a brief idea about what I do online through providing links to my projects.

    It’s the first site I designed on Genesis. It took around 16 hours. Working with Genesis does have a learning curve for me as I’m not a professional designer, but I totally enjoyed exploring it and playing in the backstage for a while :)

    The only thing I couldn’t figure out was how to add a favicon.

    I used to be a hard-core Thesis fan, but after the torment of the latest Thesis update, I feel good about switching to StudioPress.

    Thank you in advance for your ideas, criticism and suggestions!

    Glad to be here :)

    Cheers,

    Cigdem

    For favicons, you’ll need to use FTP and upload a favicon.ico file to your theme’s images file.

    Interesting little layout :-)

    Suggest using the official Twitter logo, as per their branding guidelines, and I think the G you have is more for Google, than Google+.

     

    Beyond that, welcome to the Genesis community!

    Hi Cakobu!

    Just love creative people who have the courage to do their stuff. Great work. If it is something i want is a more clear navigation. Wich is the “home”  and what is the “story teller” does it belong to your site or other stuff. Its just that.

    That is so simple and beautiful.   I switched from Thesis too about 18 months ago.   Very well done.
