Saul Bass Theme

This project was a challenge to make a somewhat unorthodox Wordpress theme, inspired by the designer Saul Bass. The goal of this project was to build a Wordpress theme that pushed away from a more typical, straight forward theme. Columns, graphics and typography all revolve around Saul Bass’s design aesthetic.

Along with the design, the theme was technically challenging as I wanted to play with css shapes, animation, and the use of svg graphics. Also a major component was into the Customizer, where the user has the ability to choose a base colour which then is matched with its analogous or complementary component. This was built with javascript and php. You can see a working version of the theme however, it’s not a fully working theme just yet. There parts and bugs that need to get worked out before it can be used successfully as a theme.
