    A little background: I wanted to switch my site off of WordPress, and my friend Jack offered to redesign it.

    But... I wanted to keep the brutalist aesthetic. (I still get quite a bit of traffic from pages like this)

    So we worked on making the site look like an old punk rock zine. (Complete with photocopied images, tweets, etc...)

    I know it won't be for everyone, but I really dig it.

    I switched to Statamic CMS from WordPress, and I'm hosting it on Digital Ocean (using Laravel Forge).

      Now, did you actually photo copied the images to start the effects or all straight photoshop?

        Nope,we're using PHP + Glide to create that effect.

        Glide is built into my CMS (Statamic), so we just run:

        <img src="{{ glide:image filter="greyscale" contrast="+70" sharpen="70" }}">.
