#5: I made some Minimal pages

Here are some of the minimal pages I made for the Matrixread Blog. Yes, the pages look straight out of notion as they contain mostly plain text and a few links.

My minimal portfolio

Here’s a short story, my old portfolio the one I made with Hugo was lit but, I’ve lost the original files and am only left with the static ones hosted on GitHub. And there was some outdated content on the page. I was looking for a new SSG (Static Site Generator) but I found this new feature on GitHub that automatically hosts Readme files [This is Awesome]. That’s it, a few lines of markdown and we have a hosted HTML page.

This will do. Maintaining the design version history is actually fun.

This is my favorite, most websites throw a form… I mean that’s good but since Matrixread is mostly of static content for speed, this is it. I ain’t much but it works.

The 404 Page

The actual idea was to make an interactive 404 page but ended up making a boring one. Except for the colors, I’m happy. I guess a meme will make this complete.
