About the project

Something Curated is a blog for the conscious aesthete, celebrating the people defining new standards and tastes. It is about understanding their narratives and how they shape our cities.

The website is unobtrusive, focusing on the content. Vertical rhythm and proportional type sizing provide a nice reading experience to the user. The design is built from a mobile-first perspective to make sure that the experience and content is optimal on each device.

The logotype is accompanied with a monogram that can be used on social media, as a badge or icon.
