I started with a color palette and a font. One of my first steps was to redraw their logo, very slightly deconstructed, and I used their signature blue to create a set of compound colors. Then, the Birth of a Hero font, from dafont.com is a bit more on the deconstructed side, reminiscent of the Avicii logo, and wonderfully edgy/post-modern.
Behind the Scenes
I made pretty extensive use of some still-experimental CSS3 effects in this theme. The gradient, banner-style headers employ a CSS gradient background image. The slightly sunken text effects were done with dual CSS text shadows using RGB alpha property values. Once again, I leaned on the Gantry Framework to take most of the fuss out of the development process, allowing me to focus on aesthetics rather than PHP.
