Who doesn’t honestly love sophisticated culture? A three-piece suit with the cane & top hat seems to evoke the same feeling of a classy script typeface. Curly lettering with fancy linework has provided an articulate beauty in the design world.

But custom designers put a lot of work into lettering which often turns into logos, posters, business cards, and other forms of promotional material. Check out this collection of script typography made for print and digital mediums. If you really love fancy design consider a quick look through this gallery with your favorite opera glasses.

A year ago, finding a blogging platform that focused on blogging was impossible. Even content creation platforms that advertised as having an easy set-up and were specifically for bloggers seemed to focus mostly on the creation of the layout of a blog. For instance, WordPress has some amazing news and magazine themes, but it certainly isn’t a quick set-up. Tumblr themes are a bit simpler but still come with some bells and whistles that many found annoying. Bloggers just wanted to be able to quickly set up a simple but professionally designed blog and start publishing.

John O’Nolan was one such blogger who became frustrated enough with the situation that he hired Hannah Wolfe as lead developer, received funding through Kickstarter, and created a simple blogging platform called Ghost. With so many supporters due to blogging platform ire already, Ghost quickly received the funding it needed to launch on 14 October 2013. The other good news is that there are themes for more than just writers. Portfolio ghost themes are also emerging.

So, if you are a blogger or a designer looking to set up a simple blogging or even portfolio platform, Ghost is one platform that brings content back to the forefront on the web. In fact, below is a list of 30 of our favorite ghost themes so far. All are very elegant and, most importantly, provide a clean layout to help your content shine.

This process requires fast iterations of design to implement features, test how they work, and fix what doesn’t work until you reach a comfortable solution.

I’ll be focusing specifically on website design, but keep in mind that you can rapidly prototype any interface including mobile apps or GUIs for software.
