I’ve recently been fiddling around with “branding,” as it were. As much as I dislike a focus upon image, I do like to have things neat and tidy. I have no formal background in art or design, and have done no proper studying on the topic, but I do have a certain approach which is distinguishable — hence this website and West Coast Reactionaries have both been praised on their looks (and content!)

I also mention this as today I had a redesign of my Tumblr page — one I’m finally happy with. Tumblr as a platform subsists entirely upon æsthetics, whether textual or pictorial, and a Tumblr page can say a great deal about someone’s projected image and tastes.
