    Hey Brian, I just wanted to stop by and say until yesterday AM I didn't know who you were, or what you were about. 24 hours later I've been totally consumed by your work, your writing and your attitude.

    I think the brianhoffdesign site is beautiful. It is completely covered in gorgeous details and interactions, each one working to serve a purpose. Love what you do dude, it has made me feel completely inspired.

    In terms of using Siteleaf, do other users also update your site, and how "technical" do you need to be to update content? (thinking outloud here for a client CMS solution).

      Wow, thanks Thomas! I appreciate you sharing such kind words and even happier to hear I could add value to you :)

      I've been loving Siteleaf so far! The beauty of it lies in its simplicity. A CMS, like WordPress for example, power lies not only in its ease of use, but also plugins that make things a bit more dynamic and client-friendly to add sidebars, etc. This features also crowd up WordPress by default. Siteleaf has a focus on content. That's it. If you're looking for a CMS for yourself (or client) that makes udpating / adding / modifiying easy, Siteleaf is perfect for that. It supports multiple users. It supports markdown (I like this feature for writing and importing)

      Here's a few screenshots of the UI (with some notes point out a few things): • http://brianhoffdesign.d.pr/Gh9Qhttp://brianhoffdesign.d.pr/10ynXhttp://brianhoffdesign.d.pr/1bdSs

      Compare those screenshots to this casestudy: http://brianhoffdesign.com/#/work/rabbletv and you'll get a better feel for how we handled elements for the casestudy section. Hope that helps!
