A Refreshing New Look For Darren Hoyt

Darren Hoyt who is the creator of the Mimbo Pro theme recently gave his personal site a refresh. The new look is in a word, beautiful. Everything from the colors used to the spacing to the typography looks spot on. I’m digging the slight transparency which I’ve seen few designs actually get right. I’m on the fence regarding the sideways facing Feedback button but it doesn’t bother me that much. Everything on the site just appears crisp, clean, and refreshing. Sheesh, sounds like I’m doing an advertisement for bottled water!


According to this blog post, it looks like Darren is in line for a bit of a career change by becoming a full time freelance designer. He mentions there are a few WordPress opportunities in his pipeline. Despite the career change, he plans on designing new products for his ProTheme store so not all hope is lost for those who have purchased Mimbo Pro.

The best of luck to you Darren.

  1. Wow, thanks Jeff, I’m flattered by the review. Indeed, I won’t have to develop WP projects at 2:00am any longer to balance them with a full-time office job. I’ll hopefully be spending most of this summer sketching and building all the themes that have been in my head the last few years. I know “the grass is always greener”, but the freelance life is sounding pretty sweet right now.

  2. @Darren Hoyt – Hey Darren, thanks for stopping by. I wouldn’t mind just writing about this stuff all day everyday but until it can pay the bills, just going to have to work my way into it. Congrats on the freelance life, it must feel pretty good to know that you’re in control of your destiny.
