The New Curious City

The New Curious City is a music and culture blog based in Charleston, SC, run by Elliott Hay. It is a cool up and coming music site for fans of shoegaze, vaporwave, indie rock, and other experimental, avant-garde music.

Elliott hired me to create a custom theme and transfer his existing blog out of into an externally-hosted solution. This was my first custom WordPress development project for someone other than myself, and I’m very happy with how things turned out.

This custom theme includes custom taxonomies, a custom blocks table of contents block, and a well-crafted responsive design that is inspired by 8-bit graphics.

It is crafted with speed, security, and user experience in mind, making for a visually-appealing, easily-navigable theme that is beginner-friendly on both the backend and the front end.
