    Hey, congrats on the site. It looks really clean and I always love the experience of a static generated site. The JAMStack is where it's at!

    After reading your post, I thought I should mention a couple technologies I recently stumbled across during my research into finding the right static site setup for myself.

    You mentioned that you're using Buddy and it looks like they charge $49/month for the same service that Netlify offers for free and also includes hosting. I've been testing it out with the Hugo static site framework (which has CRAZY fast build times) and it's been flawless. And FREE! Did I mention it's all free? ;)

    You also mentioned having some fear of the terminal (totally understandable) and there's another amazing service that offers an online GUI to manage your static site contents called Forestry. Coming from WordPress it can be nice to have an editor that isn't a terminal or desktop IDE. It integrates with Jekyll or Hugo as well as Netlify, and every time you make an update, it makes a commit to your repo, runs your build commands, and auto deploys. Oh, and it's totally free too!

    Just thought I'd mention them in the event it saves you some $. Cheers!

      Thanks David! I have friends that just did new websites as well and went with Hugo. Seems to be pretty similar to Jekyll.

      There's actually a free plan over at Buddy too - the only downside is that it has a shared queue but so far I haven't had to wait more than a couple of minutes for things to push through.

      Will look into Forestry! Thanks again for all your suggestions! (Always up for saving $!)

    Simple and clean, solid sized typo. Great reading experience. Just wish the navigation would adhere to the same standards and use the same typeface as the rest of the page.

    Big props Anton - you're positioning is flawless. The language used across the site is some of the best I've read from a UX Designers perspective when pitching to clients, not just other informed designers. I feel inspired :)

    Was this tested in Mobile Safari? It's broken for me on an iPad Air 2:
