Brightly Colored is designed and developed by me, Tim Smith, in beautiful St. Paul, Minnesota. This publication covers a whole range of things including, but not limited to: design, development, technology, Geek culture, and Apple.

How It’s Made

Most writing is done on my Macbook Pro in iA Writer. I also write and publish from iOS in Editorial. If you’d like to learn how I do that, I wrote about it.

The site is designed and developed in Atom, with the exception of the logo. That was done in Adobe Illustrator. I won’t link to that one because if you’ve never heard of it, you’ve probably lived a better life. It’s all hosted by Heroku Netlify, and powered by Jekyll. If you’re wondering how to do that, I wrote about moving to Netlify.

Why Brightly Colored?

The old name of this site—The Bold Report— just felt too official for the purpose. The name Brightly Colored matches my personality so much better. You’ll normally find me wearing bright and vibrant things like yellow shorts, bright-patterned socks, and red shoes. I could go into other things that this name means to me personally, but I don’t want to bore you.
