If you are a regular reader (yes, you’re the one), you’ll notice that Playpen has had a spruce up with a new theme. If you’re thinking it looks quite similar to The Designer’s Review of Books, you’re not wrong. They both use the excellent Thesis theme and I really didn’t change a lot for the DRoB because I liked the typography and layout so much.

But Playpen is looking a bit start white right now, vanilla out-of-the-box white. It should look a little different soon as I finally bring up a homepage for polaine.com to represent the consulting work I do (and plan to do) more clearly, though the blog URL and name of Playpen will remain.

In the meantime, if you find anything that is broken (which might be quite a lot) or anything missing that you used to like before, let me know.
