The design of this site is intentionally minimalistic. I didn’t want a lot of clutter on the menu bar, so I decided to place all of my projects into a submenu under “Projects.” However, since most websites generally have a little repetition, I also included the pages on the right sidebar. This was done by going into widgets and dragging “Pages” under “Primary (top) Sidebar.”
As for the color scheme, the range of grays were chosen with the help of Adobe Kuler. It’s a great site to find complimentary colors.
