Who it's for

Heidi was originally designed with small public libraries in mind, but would work great for any institution, organization, or individual who's interested in presenting their content in a fun, organized, and modern way. With a consistent design across static pages and blog posts, and a good handful of customization options, Heidi works well for a variety of user needs.

Behind the design

I wanted Heidi to be clean and minimal, while still fun. Heidi is based off of Underscores. I drew inspiration from flat design, and also based some of the design off a group project I completed in the summer of 2014 with two other students in my Master's program.


Heidi uses two fonts throughout the design. Both are from Google fonts.

  1. Open Sans

    Open Sans is the main font used throughout the theme, in the header, blog posts, static pages, the sidebar widget area, and the site footer.

  2. Libre Baskerville

    Libre Baskerville is the secondary font, used mainly in the post and page titles.
