I just completed another WordPress blog for a client of my good friend and associate, David Schiffer, of DLS Design. David built a beautiful, static site for Gregory Poe, a lawyer in federal criminal law practice, and trusted me to copy his look and feel for the dynamic blog section. The static part of the site featured variable-width left and right margins with an image mapped navigation bar, so I selected my favorite variable-width theme, Minimal, and reconfigured his menu as a WordPress style list so that any new pages Gregory created in WordPress would be automatically added to the navigation elements.
Once Gregory started posting on blog.gpoelaw.com, we realized that his style of writing detailed legalese needed some additional typographic punch so we darkened the text and block justified the paragraphs for additional readability. Under the hood, I added my standard mix of plugins for SEO, Google Analytics and advanced editing.
