It's been 5 years since I launched my previous site design. Time for a new one. I really love the simplicity of this one:

Looks fantastic! Simplicity and minimilism are hot and trendy right now, but are also timeless and classic.

That looks pretty good indeed.

I'm wondering how you created your archive.

It's some customized queries that I wrapped in a Nucleus plugin so it would be easy to include in the skinparts. It's pretty custom / specific to my needs, but I might clean it up and make it more generic so others can use it. (It's also not efficient right now; need to add caching. :)

It kinda looks like the archives on a tumbler. But without the images.

That was the inspiration. I credit that on the about page and the bottom of the archives page. :)

You might be interested in looking at this: jQuery Masonry, that and some ajax would really complete the tumbler effect. Not that it really needs it, the simple clean look of what you have works well.
