Colophon

Plechazunga.com was made with love and coffee using Yeoman and Sublime Text 2. The fonts are FS Joey Web, designed by the wonderful folks over at Fontsmith and DIN Text Pro by parachute. They are provided by Fontdeck.

The design is in constant flux. No use of Photoshop with the exception of editing photos (as it should be used). This site is an experiment of rapid prototyping and deployment.
